WorldCat Discovery account roles

See the available WorldCat Discovery account roles for individual WorldShare accounts.

Staff with the Admin authorization level will be able to create, manage and disable WorldCat Discovery staff accounts in the WorldShare interface, Admin tab.

Staff with the Staff authorization will not be able to manage other accounts. The ability to manage other staff accounts is the only difference between two authorization levels. The staff features in the WorldCat Discovery interface are identical for both authorization levels.
