The physical item availability recommendations come from our usability testing on Discovery. You can read more about our findings in our Spring 2019 report. See the Recommendations section for more details. This option was added in the January 2019 release of WorldCat Discovery.  

Our level 2 recommendation also comes from our 2015/16 usability testing on Discovery. Read more about our findings in our Fall 2015/Winter 2016 report. See the Recommendations section for a description of issues found with this setting.
