Display locally held formats on search results

To help users access all locally held formats from a default edition, libraries can configure other locally-held formats to display on search results.

When viewing search results, WorldCat Discovery displays one link for each unique format locally held by your institution.

 Note:  This feature is available to all WorldCat Discovery subscribers. 

See User Interface Options, General Display Settings for configuration information.

If you do not have availability on demand, the representative record will include a link to each locally-held format type that is not the same year as the representative record citation.  

The links indicate whether the additional format type is newer or older than the publication date of the representative record.

 Note:  If your library subscribes to Availability on brief, use this setting in conjunction with the physical item availability on electronic item search results setting below.  Other formats will display one of each locally-held format type that is not the same year as the representative record citation OR the physical item available on the electronic record.
