Why doesn't my library appear in holdings displays for items I know we have?

Applies to
  • WorldCat.org
Answer

There could be two explanations:

  1. Your holdings may not be current for that particular item. We encourage you to make sure holdings information is current in WorldCat to ensure correct exposure through WorldCat.org
  2. The item might share the same title but may exist in a different format or edition, and thus be catalogued as a separate item (e.g., a large-print or audio version of a book).

OCLC addresses the issue of duplicate records for the same title whenever it is identified, so that users are able to recognize and choose from among multiple-item records.
