Policy Justification: Due to the technical architecture of the Alma NZ, changes must be entered into the WorldCat bibliographic record or they will be lost when the Alma record is overlaid. By cataloging at the WorldCat level, Alliance members improve discoverability for all Alliance Primo users, not just their own users.
- Members must commit to providing adequate and appropriate cataloging of materials at the WorldCat level
- Corrections and changes to bibliographic records which enhance record retrieval are of primary importance
- Corrections and changes to bibliographic records brought into Alma from WorldCat must be made to the master record in WorldCat not locally in Alma
