PALNI’s recommended settings for WorldCat Discovery

All of these collections are available to activate in Collection Manager as well as in Service Configuration. Each school will have its own preferred method for administering these collections, so we do not have a PALNI wide recommendation for HathiTrust or the Internet Archive / Project Gutenberg.

We do recommend that all libraries select the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway to allow access to CONTENTdm items.

Additionally, we recommend either selecting Government and Educational documents here in Service Configuration or activating those collections in Collection Manager.
