Add the Open Bookshelf Collection to a Library Catalog

Once you have configured the DPLA Open Bookshelf in a Circulation Manager, you can add it to any library catalog served by the Circulation Manager. The Open Bookshelf metadata records will be ingested only once, but those resulting records can be attached to any library in the Circulation Manager as desired so the works appear in the specific library's catalog. Follow these steps to attach the collection to a library. The instructions assume the library's record has already been created in the Circulation Manager. If not, first create the library in the Circulation Manager.

a. Login to the Admin interface as needed
b. Click the Collections tab in the left sidebar
c. Find the DPLA Open Bookshelf item in the list and click its Edit button

 
11. Under the Add Library field, click the drop-down list 
12. In the dropdown list, click the name of the library to which you'd like to add the Open Bookshelf titles

15. Click the Submit button to save your changes for the collection 

Delete a Library's Connection to the Open Bookshelf
