How do I get an item to show up as Available in WorldShare Circulation?

  • When viewed in WorldShare Circulation, a item is shown as status Unavailable in the copies view of a title.
Applies to
  • WorldShare Circulation

Please verify that the library has a Collection Type Policy in place for the Branch location. If there is not a policy set up, the default status is Unavailable

  1. Sign in to the OCLC Service Configuration
  2. Click WMS Circulation> Collection Type Policy
  3. Search for the name of the branch to verify that there is a policy in place at that location.  If a policy has more than 5 branches, it will need to be expanded before the search.
  • To change an item status to Available in WorldShare Circulation, check-in the item's barcode
    • Check-in must be done while signed into the item's matching branch location
    • Checking an item into a different branch location will set the item into an In Transit  status.
