If I delete a holding via a batch process will the holding for knowledge base titles be deleted too

  • You're about to run a batch delete program on a set of OCNs, but some may appear in the WorldCat knowledge base and you want to know if their knowledge base holding will disappear too. 
Applies to
  • WorldCat knowledge base
  • WMS Collection Manager
  • WorldCat Discovery
  • WorldCat Local

Although the titles will continue to appear in your WorldCat knowledge base collections, the holding on the title will be gone. The KB links will continue to appear in WorldCat Discovery, but the "Held By" statement will disappear and the title will no longer appear in searches limited to your local library until the holdings are re-added.
