When I am in WorldCat, I see many holdings, but when I go to the OCLC tab in ILLiad, I only see a couple holdings

  • When you are searching the WorldCat Database, you see many holdings.  When you click on the OCLC tab and do a search in ILLiad, you only see a couple holdings.
Applies to
  • ILLiad 

This occurs when limits are set on your search results in ILLiad.

To fix this there are a couple of options.  The first option is to Change the Type box to Any by:

  1. Click on the Limit box drop down. If the Type box indicates anything other than Any, proceed to Step 2.
  2. There will be a checkmark beside one or more of the entries in the list.  You can either deselect those boxes or click Clear.
  3. Click to the right in the open space that is not part of the box of options.   You will see the Type field change to Any.
  4. Now you can search again and you should get more entries.

The second option is to update the Customization Manager OCLCILLAutoLimitType to No:

  1. Under System, open the OCLC category. The OCLCILLAutoLimitType displays. 
  2. Select No and save the change. 
  3. Log out of ILLiad Client and log back in. The Request Type of Any now displays in the Limit box.
