LibKey link appearing for content outside your library's holdings

  • You've found a title in WorldCat Discovery that you don't own, but it is showing a LibKey View PDF link.
Applies to
  • WorldCat Discovery

This View PDF link could be an Open Access link that you have access to regardless of whether you have a subscription to the journal.

LibKey Discovery links in WorldCat stem from a data upload process that populates holdings on the LibKey side. That data is sent to LibKey automatically on a monthly basis. If you've had major holdings changes and want to update the holdings sooner, you may want to use the KB Downloads option to get a file of all your holdings and send them manually to Libkey/Third Iron.
