RE: data files of holdings for batchload to OCLC
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Hello - When I last reported to OCLC, I used review files of 60,000
records. When each list was full, I recorded the last record number in
the review file, and then started the next with that record number.
Also, I am curious about the 90,000 record limitation. I sent one
review file of 150,000 records - our largest list, and I did not hear
any negative feedbaks - in fact, our holdings were successfully
reported. Hope this helps,

At Black Gold Coop we are preparing to participate in the California
Libraries Catalog project. As part of this project, California has
contracted with OCLC for batchload service to update WorldCat, so we
received instructions from OCLC that we need to extract MARC records
our III server to create data files of our holdings.
I understand that I need to use the "Read/Write MARC records" function
this, but for that process I first need to create a review file to break
holdings into 90,000 records or less (OCLC specifies that each of the
eventual data files can not exceed 90,000 records). Specifying a range
bib record numbers in Create Lists does not give the results expected.
My regrets if I'm missing something obvious with this question; this
my usual area. I opened a call with III for help, but any thoughts from
members would be very much appreciated. Has any III users been through
specifically, or have any general direction?
