Abstract: This test dataset (hereafter referred to as the dataset) provides a controlled set of data for use in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (hereafter referred to as Z-Interop). OCLC selected a 1% weighted sample from its WorldCat database, which contains approximately 45 million records. This document focuses on the analysis procedures used to prepare for Phase 1 Testing in Spring 2002. A subsequent version of this document will address the additional procedures for Phase 2 Testing scheduled for Summer 2002.
