Item bibliographic data display

See where and how item bibliographic data is displayed in WorldCat Discovery records and find information about the staff view of MARC records.

 

Bibliographic data in the item detail 

See OCLC's Bibliographic Standards and Formats for more information. To learn more about WorldCat Discovery maps local bibliographic data (LBD) and local holdings records (LHRs) to OCLC MARC tags, see Display local data.

See Item Details Settings for instructions on customizing how data from MARC records, including local bibliographic data (LBD), displays to library users when they view item details information for records in the Discovery interface.

When the item is cataloged using non-Latin characters, transliterations for the Title and Summary/Abstract fields will appear in the bibliographic record. The transliterated summary is available via the Alternates Exist link. 

Bibliographic data appears in two areas of the interface:

  1. Brief item detail: The brief item bibliographic data shown for items in search results and persisting at the top of the screen when an item is selected.
  2. Description: The item data from the MARC record.

 Note: Search relevance indicators highlight matching search terms in the result entries. If you add an index label to your search terms, the relevant subject entries will also display in the result set.
