Notes

General Validation

When creating or updating records, OCLC's heading control and reformat operations are always called. Additionally, all records are passed through validation routines.

Read

When performing a read of a record, if the OCLC Number passed in the read has been merged then the web service will return the record for the OCLC Number that the original record has been merged into. The returned record will the correct merged record OCLC number in the 001.

Create

When performing a create of a record, a holding will not automatically be set for the library creating the record. To both create a record and set a holding on the record for the creating library. Two API calls are necessary. One to create the record. One to set holdings on the record using the Holding Resource.

Update

When updating records, they must include a numeric OCLC Number in the 001 field. Do not include "ocm", "ocn", or "on" prefixes.

When updating records, if the record being updated is an OCLC Number that has been merged, then the web service will return an error.

When updating records, the records must include the 005 field. The value of this field must match the value current record in WorldCat.

Validate Operations

Grandfathered records are records with validation errors which have been added to WorldCat using batch and other services that enforce lower levels of validation requirements. If a record already has errors associated with it when such a is updated and replaced, those existing errors do not have to be fixed in the record. Only errors introduce when updating the record to be replaced have to be fixed.

Validate for Add

Perform full validate and apply edit validation rules

Validate for Replace

Perform full validation, apply edit and replace rules, but ignore grandfathered errors.
