Create a print serial knowledge base collection through Collection Manager

Use these instructions to create a print serial knowledge base collection in Collection Manager. Some institutions using WorldCat Discovery choose to represent their print serials:

  • To surface print titles side by side with full-text resources in the A to Z list
  • To optimize the discovery of full-text resources by using coverage to determine article holdings in WorldCat Discovery

To create a print serial collection:

  1. Follow the instructions to Create a knowledge base collection in Collection Manager.
  2. After you create the collection, navigate in Collection Manager to Settings > WorldCat Discovery > Coverage and enable the coverage settings. Do not enable the setting until after you have represented your print serial collections.
