Description

OhioLINK catalogs Springer and Wiley ebooks on behalf of its members using enhanced OCLC provided records. Since OCLC’s transition to the WorldShare platform for record delivery, OhioLINK noticed a severe reduction in quality of OCLC provided Springer records. To understand the full extent of the issue, OhioLINK, after discussing the issue with OCLC and Springer, tracked OCLC WorldShare Springer and Wiley records to determine if records are upgraded to national standards and redelivered in a timely manner. This presentation will outline the findings of the project and summarize how the flow of metadata through the publishing process has an effect on cataloging. This presentation will also review workflow updates made by OhioLINK, OCLC, and Springer after working together for several years to ensure better metadata and record quality for the community.
