To set up integration with OCLC Worldshare, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- OCLC Symbol
The Base URL is always: http://www.worldcat.org/webservices/catalog/
The integration uses OCLC's search API only - WorldCat Search API (wcapi). So it is this API for which WS-Key you will need to provide.
Checking the setup in your DCS settings
Below is an example of how your DCS settings will look after a successful integration is setup.
Checking the setup in a DCS request
Once integrated you should check your catalogue holdings in the DCS to ensure the setup is correct. An integrated title should appear as below.
If the catalogue result is incorrect or you purchase an item not in the catalogue, you can confirm ownership using the 'Override' icon.
If the result is in error, stating that you own material that you do not, this can also be overridden using the 'Override' icon.
