WorldCat Discovery - Recommended Settings for for PALNI Libraries: General Display Settings

Rationale

Displaying Editions & Formats and Other Formats on brief results allow users to discover alternate versions of items held by your or others libraries.

The Other Formats option was added in the January 2019 release of WorldCat Discovery.  

These recommendations come from our 2019 usability testing on Discovery. You can read more about our findings in our Spring 2019 report. See the Recommendations section for the most detailed analysis.

The Shelf Browse option was added in the May 2019 release of WorldCat Discovery, and is currently the only way in Discovery for users to do a virtual shelf browse.
