WorldCat and the WorldCat Filter

When importing from WorldCat, the amount of information is much less that say ten years ago. Is there a better import filter that captures more of the data or is the problem on the WorldCat end?

Re: WorldCat and the WorldCat Filter

Are you using an outdated import filter? The Endnote website shows the most recent OCLC Worldcat import filter is dated 2013-09-05: http://endnote.com/downloads/filters?field_filter_data_provider_value_op=starts&field_filter_data_pr...

 

If you’re using a current import filter then the issue may be a mismatch between the exported field data and the Endnote import filter's tags. If this is the case it's possible to modify the filter if provided a sample of the exported records and data fields in order to compare them against the Endnote import filter.
