|OCLC implemented the
Digital Registry using existing WorldCat functionality and current MARC
fields. This implementation strategy
allows contribution to and use of the registry to be aligned with regular
library workflows. The DLF/OCLC working group created Guidelines for using
the Digital Registry with existing OCLC and MARC functionality. The
Guidelines will be available on the DLF website shortly.
|In phase one, any
library can follow the Guidelines and contribute and update records via
Connexion, or contribute, but not update them, via special batch processing
coordinated with OCLC.
