  • After exporting a bib record from OCLC Connexion Client to the NZ, you'll receive a message that says "The record has been processed successfully, MMS id is ... (ending with 4801)

OCLC Connexion Web Browser Settings:

The connection information for the Connexion Web Browser are the same as listed above for the Client. However, you enter them under General->Admin->Export Options. 

  • Flagged Bibliographic Record Format: MARC
  • Export Destination: Export to a TCP/IP Connection
  • Export File Type: Individual

Note that you can only have one export in the web client. It is recommended if you have more than one web client login to dedicate one login to the NZ export and one login for the IZ export.

OCLC Record Manager

The connection information for Record Manager are the same as listed above for the Connexion Client. 

To set up the export:

  • Go to your Worldshare login page
  • Click on the Metadata tab
  • Click on Record Manager. Contact OCLC support or fill out the request form if you don't have a Metadata tab or if you don't see the Record Manager option. It's free for anyone with a cataloging subscription.
