I searched for a title and got a result that was completely unrelated to the item I searched, why?

Applies to
  • WorldCat Discovery

When a user does a search the entire record is searched, including any local bibliographic data (LBD).  This search includes metadata that is not necessarily visible in WorldCat Discovery.  In order to refine the search more, use quotes around the search terms or use a title search.

Additional information

Please see the Title search index and Local bibliographic data (LBD) field mapping for more information.
