WorldCat Discovery Configuration, Part 1: Content and staff features
Learn how to set up institution information, enable databases and links to open access e-content and use the staff features in WorldCat® Discovery.
This module provides instruction on how to set up institution information, enable databases and links to open access e-content and use the staff features in WorldCat® Discovery.
Upon completion of this session, learners will be able to confirm their library’s location in the WorldCat Registry, customize their WorldCat Discovery Web URL by adding a library logo, banner and colors and set up basic authentication through IP addresses. Learners will be able to identify default databases for their search box and enable links from master WorldCat records to open access e-content. Features and benefits of using the staff account in WorldCat Discovery are reviewed. In general, patrons do not need accounts to be able to search and see results in WorldCat Discovery. The staff account presents additional information for librarians and library staff.
This course is for institutions that are getting started with WorldCat Discovery and who want to optimize the service for their patrons and staff. Other staffs that administer online resources may find this content useful as a basis for configuring WorldCat Discovery for their institution.
