In a library group setting where access to WorldCat on FirstSearch is shared and/or attached only to the main library's OCLC symbol, are the holdings of all group libraries visible through WorldCat.org?

Applies to
  • WorldCat.org
Answer

Yes, the holdings of the entire group are visible, if the FirstSearch/WorldCat Discovery subscription is identified within OCLC systems as a group authorization and group libraries are identified as affiliates of the group. The WorldCat Registry also functions as a place to designate branches and affiliations for your library that will impact the way your library appears on WorldCat.org.
