How can I avoid getting article citation records in my WorldCat search results?

Applies to
  • WorldCat Discovery

Citations for articles not cataloged in WorldCat may appear if your library has chosen to enable databases other than WorldCat. To exclude these results, you can perform an Advanced Search and limit the search database to just WorldCat or filter your results to just the WorldCat database. Please note, your library must have WorldCat selected as separate database in order to limit results to just WorldCat. 

Libraries can make changes to the databases configured for searching in the OCLC Service Configuration under Metasearch Content > Default Databases and Licensed Content
