Atma Global titles (distributed by BEP) are cataloged by Susan; completed records
are loaded by Matt to OCLC, 035 PCN added, and then an URL sent to the client.

BEP sends the PDFs for Atma to ebrary on the 20th of each month. Ebrary then assigns
doc IDs, which Susan should receive in a spreadsheet. SLC then creates MARC records
and transmits these to ebrary. At the next 20th of the month. MARCs are then uploaded
at ebrary, following the book upload by a month.

Atma website:

SLC prepares whole work (and formerly chapter level) electronic records. No records
for print versions are prepared. The 090$e of the whole work records are the ebrary
numbers, provided by ebrary. The 090$e of the chapter level records were the eISBNs
plus chapter numbers (01, 02, etc.) or letters for part (tc for table of contents, etc.)

BEP will notify Susan of the publication of a new title prior to ebrary's sending the
ebrary number. Susan retains the record until the ebrary number is received, substituting i
t for the 090$eISBN before sending to Matt.

Susan sends records to Matt

Matt loads Atma records using the BEP OCLC account, adding OCoLC 035

Vdata Account Instructions for Sending MARC Files to OCLC
Business Expert Press:

Password: zBtMA|qD
Username: nybep

Your password is case sensitive, so do not use ZbTma|Qd, but rather zBtMA|qD.
Your username is also case sensitive, so do not use NYBEP but rather nybep.

The machine supports both sftp and ftp although sftp is the preferred method.
The following are examples for using sftp and ftp, respectively, for the transmission.

Method One: sftp
1) sftp (nybep is your OCLC symbol or username)
2) enter the password zBtMA|qD when prompted
3) cd wcp/in/matching
4) put vrcp20080829 (This example assumes vrcp20080829 is the file on your
system -- you may use any file name that you wish.)
5) quit
Method Two: ftp
1) ftp
2) nybep (nybep is your OCLC symbol or username)
3) enter the password zBtMA|qD when prompted
4) cd wcp/in/matching
5) put vrcp20080829 (This example assumes vrcp20080829 is the file on
your system -- you may use any file name that you wish.)
6) quit

File Names:
Avoid special characters in file names, such as ~!@#$%^&*()_+=-/'"][{}|\.
Avoid diacritics like acute, umlaut, etc. (Examples: á, ö, ã, etc.)
Avoid using spaces; our system will not recognize the existence of a
file with a space in the file name.

If you send more than one file in a day, give a unique name to each file.
You may name the file on our system anything (with the exceptions noted
here), but having the file in the proper directory, wcp/in/matching, is very important.
