Guidelines for Editing PCC Bibs in WorldCat

Justification

These guidelines are to provide clarification as to what can be edited by NACO/SACO institutions and non-NACO/SACO institutions.

Policy

Alliance libraries who are not members of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) cannot edit most fields in PCC-authenticated WorldCat records. However, non-PCC libraries can add or edit specific fields as listed in Database Enrichment. For detailed information, see the following links:

If you are uncertain as to whether or not you should be editing a record, contact the Technical Services Program Manager.
