    Question

    Publish Bibliographic records to OCLC job sends records for the library which is defined in the Publishing Profile "OCLC Institution Symbol".

    Is there an option to set this up for multiple libraries? For example, our law library would also like to be able to have this same job running to publish their bibs to OCLC, but it appears that this can only be set-up for one OCLC symbol..

    Answer

    Publishing to multiple libraries is enabled.

    1. The main OCLC symbol is defined in the "Publish bibliographic record (Batchload) to OCLC" profile
    2. In the table "Institution OCLC symbol" it is possible to define more than one symbol. The symbol which matches the 852$$b will be taken.
    3. Find the table in: Resource Configuration Menu > Institution OCLC symbol
