After you have defined collections in your WorldCat knowledge base, continue with the following instructions:
Libraries using Pubget: You can set ILL status and instructions on collections added via Pubget (Note: After you add a provider in Puget, it may take up to 7 days for the collections to be reflected in your WorldCat knowledge base)
If you are not sure whether or not your license for a particular collection allows interlibrary lending, you can see how other libraries have treated that collection via OCLC’s list of enabled collections.
If you are an ILLiad library, make sure that you see the ‘Collections’ tab for incoming requests. This is where the links to full text from your knowledge base and associated lending requirements appear.
See the guide to building your WorldCat knowledge base and configuring your settings for instructions on how to:
After you have completed the implementation steps, test your results. You can test requests by creating requests for articles that are known to be in a collection in your WorldCat knowledge base as if you were a patron. Verify that the links to e-resources are appearing in the requests. Make sure that “Direct produce” is set to “no” during testing.
If you can, create a mock request from another library to ensure that knowledge base links appear in requests initiated by other libraries.
