Format, coverage value, and title URL requirements

- Have an OCLC number and have a URL/856 and be of a readable format and coverage (i.e., journal [fulltext, print], ebook, and so forth), or
- Have an OCLC number and have a coverage value of other or print (but lack a URL/856)
OCLC number requirements
A title might be missing an OCLC number if:
- No record exists for the item in WorldCat
- A record exists but because of the complexities of cataloging electronic items, it is not classified as an electronic resource in a way that corresponds to the knowledge base’s matching process
