The North Carolina State Archives does not contribute records to WorldCat. Our “catalog” is a home-grown database that supports multi-level description; however, it isn’t based on any standardized metadata schema. As far as I know we have never done MARC cataloging here. We are investigating several content management systems that have the potential to export MARC records. In the event that we acquired a system that could automate the creation of MARC records, I think there might be a chance that we would start contributing to WorldCat. But otherwise, it’s not likely that we would create MARC records, since our own “catalog” doesn’t even support it. For those who do contribute to WorldCat, do you have any evidence that it actually enhances discovery of your collections?
