This can be done through the WorldShare Collection Manager. The Collection Manager does not need a subscription to WorldShare Discovery, or any other extra subscription; it is available to any member of OCLC. Collection Manager is designed for collections of electronic resources, and provides a knowledge base of many hundreds of e-resource collections. But it can also be used to create local collections of print or electronic titles.
There are two types of local collections you could create:
* a collection of titles loaded from a KBART file. The file can include OCLC numbers, or can be linked to OCLC records after loading.
* a query collection. This query will search WorldCat and produce a list of titles matching the query.
Once you have a collection, you can download the MARC records. You can choose to have downloads come through the Collection Manager interface, or have OCLC set up an FTP download site for you. The files will be in standard MARC format, with a .dat extension.
There may be other methods of doing similar things specifically for WorldShare Discovery customers that I am not familiar with.
It is also possible to do a batch search in OCLC Connexion Client, and export the records into a file. You may not even need something as complicated as Collection Manager, depending on exactly what you want to do.

For libraries who subscribe to OCLC’s Worldshare Management Services, is there a way to: 1) create a set of records of interest, and 2) export those records in MARC (“communications”) format? I’m talking about back-end operations here, not public consumption interfaces. Inquiring minds would like to know. —Eric Lease Morgan
