What is the difference between adding a collection in WorldShare Collection Manager and adding databases in the Metasearch Content module?

Adding databases in the Metasearch Content module of the OCLC Service Configuration is about discovery and allows your users to search the records available in the added database. 

Adding collections in WorldShare Collection Manager provides full-text access to these records from the WorldCat Discovery interface.   Please see Configure content and staff features for more information.
