How does FLO handle EBL record loading?

Submitted by kelly on January 31, 2014

All new BIB records for the FLO EBL DDA program come from OCLC.  

  • EBL sends weekly updates to our profile to OCLC. 
  • OCLC send new records for adds, deletes, and updates to their FTP site where FLO picks them up and processes them. 
  • This process takes about one week and is fully automated. 

For deletes we use the weekly update files that EBL provides. This allows us to respond to deletes more quickly and avoid dead links in Voyager.
