Why is the OCLC number in Collection Manager linking out to WorldCat.org and to a library in a different state than where my library is located?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager
  • Worldshare knowledge base
  • WorldCat.org
Answer
  • In any WorldShare Collection Manager collection, if you are not signed in to WorldCat.org before you click the OCLC Number, WorldCat.org will use the external IP address to Geo-locate the closest library with the item.
  • If you are not signed in to WorldCat.org but are proxied into your library, WorldCat.org will match the library location to the Proxy IP address.
  • If you are signed in to WorldCat.org, the top favorite library will be used as the location or the nearest library with the item.
