OCLC Relax validation in batch processing

This was announced by Rich Greene about a month ago, but may still be of interest to you. OCLC has relaxed its validation requirements for batch loading of records into the OCLC database:

“After April 13, only severe errors will prevent records from being added to WorldCat via batch. Records with minor errors will be added.

Also noted:

“…some records added via batch after April 13 may contain fill characters in the OCLC fixed field or in fields 006 or 007.”

Here’s the complete announcement.
