Configure the display of full-text links

After you check the option in OCLC Service Configuration to enable full-text links, links will appear in your WorldCat Discovery interface to full-text content.

To choose when to display or hide these links based on their source, see Full Text and Open Access Links.

WorldShare Interlibrary Loan and Tipasa libraries: Make sure you have an appropriate deflection policy in place. See How to deflect lending requests (knowledge base collections) or, if you have a subscription to License Manager, see How to deflect lending requests (License Manager).
