The Dartmouth College Library has incorporated the WorldCat Metadata API into its workflows for distributing metadata that originates in XML schemas with a primary focus on sets of MODS records created for our local digital collections. In this presentation, we’ll discuss how we use the bibliographic resource and holdings resource operations to read, create, update, and set holdings on master records representing collections and individual items. We’ll also cover our Ruby-based simple command-line utility that only requires two arguments: the name of the specific operation requested and the path to an input file.
