 +====== Creation and Use of Constant Data in OCLC’s WorldCat Connexion Client ======
 +
 +
 +Using constant data allows you to easily apply frequently used data to bibliographic records. This avoids potential errors in habitually rekeyed data. Constant data is essentially a portion of a bibliographic record that you create for standardized content that is reused frequently.
 +
 +Constant data you create is shared with any other members of your institution (same OCLC symbol).
 +
 +Information on creating, using, and managing constant data can be found at:
