Locate items in the library with StackMap

Learn how to locate items in your library using StackMap with WorldCat Discovery.

StackMap is an indoor mapping solution and way-finding tool designed to help users physically locate items and explore spaces. WorldShare Management Services institutions can integrate StackMap directly within the WorldCat Discovery interface.  

Please see StackMap for configuration information.

StackMap link display

Once enabled, StackMap links will appear on both search results and detailed records. Clicking on the StackMap link will open a library map in a modular window.  The map indicates the location of the item, including any directions configured in StackMap.  Options include:

StackMap links on search results

StackMap links to a library map appear on search results along with the availability statement. StackMap can be configured to display the StackMap button only for items that are physically available or for all items. To configure this setting, see StackMap configuration.

 Note: You must configure item availability on search results to display StackMap links. See Item Availability on Search Results for more information.
