You have the option to surface in your WorldCat Discovery interface, full-text links to your subscription e-resources. Use WorldShare Collection Manager to add collection metadata to your WorldCat knowledge base. For complete instructions, see Display full-text links and elevate links from a specific provider.
Before you select knowledge base titles and enable full-text links, see How to deflect lending requests (knowledge base collections), or if your library has License Manager, see How to deflect lending requests (License Manager).
