Open Access filter
The open access content filter narrows a user's search to a subset of WorldCat.org databases known for providing open access content.
Open Access results can be filtered on the Advanced Search screen and in search filters using Filter and refine search results. The Open Access filter searches for records cataloged with the recent Open Access for URLs MARC standard. The Open Acces filter uses the op: 0 index, which returns records that contain an 856 subfield 7 that is equal to 0. Users can also manually enter op: 0 into the search bar to return these records.

Open Access DOI links enhanced by Unpaywall
Users can access open content using DOI full text and open access links provided by Unpaywall. For more information see, https://unpaywall.org/faq. When enabled, DOIs will inform the Access Online action on search results, detailed records, and Course Reserves. DOIs are compared to Unpaywall data to ensure that only DOIs leading to open access content display. When a DOI leads to a downloadable PDF, a View PDF button appears on DOI links enhanced by Unpaywall. When it cannot be determined that a DOI link informed by Unpaywall leads to a PDF, a link to Access Online <insert DOI> appears. If a DOI is not present in Unpaywall, the DOI will not inform the Access Online button, but will continue to display in the Description of detailed records.
