Why is a link appearing in WorldCat Discovery that is not from a collection selected in Collection Manager?

Applies to
  • WorldCat Discovery 

Links from sources other than knowledge base collections may appear on records in WorldCat Discovery based on Full Text and Open Access Links settings in the OCLC Service Configuration. For example, vendor-provided links in the Central Index (any non-WorldCat database), which are mapped to the 856 field will display as full-text links if the Links from non-WorldCat Record 856 option is selected. 

Additional information

Additional information about configuring the display of full text links can be found on the Full Text and Open Access Links help page.
