How do I get my MARC records from Collection Manager?
To get OCLC MARC records from Collection Manager, customers need to have a Collection Manager account.
If you do not have a Collection Manager account:
- Fill out the Request Form to receive your Welcome Guide and instructions for creating an account.
- Set up your account and preferences with the instructions and documentation OCLC will provide.
If you do have a Collection Manager account:
- Contact OCLC Support and say "Please load my EBSCO collections. My OCLC symbol is [###]. My Registry ID is [number].”
Next, customers will need to perform a one-time setup process to configure their MARC record delivery and customization preferences. Detailed instructions and information about this process can be found here in OCLC’s EBSCO Guide.
Once the holdings feed from EBSCO has been processed, you should see the correct number of titles within a week. Note: DO NOT SELECT the collections manually. Selecting the collections manually will result in a significant delay in processing of your holdings feed.
