View LHR Change History

Discover how to enable and view the LHR Change History.


The LHR Change History allows you to view a list of actions performed on a local holdings record. Actions that display in the LHR Change History include edits to LHR fields such as the call number, branch or shelving location, barcode, notes, and more.

A user with the Cataloging Admin role assigned can enable and view the LHR Change History. Users with the following roles can view the LHR Change History if it has been enabled, but cannot enable or disable it themselves:

  • LHR History Viewer
  • Cataloging Full

Refer to Record Manager account roles for more information.

View the LHR Change History

The LHR Change History table is off by default and must be enabled in the WorldShare Record Manager panel. Enabling it will cause the LHR Change History to appear throughout Record Manager, Circulation, and Acquisitions.


  • It may take up to 10 minutes for the LHR updates to be reflected in the LHR Change History table.
  • If a LHR has a large change history with over 100 edits, the most recent history will be displayed along with the message: "Due to the size of the history changes for this record, we will only display the last changes that were made to the record." 

Enable the LHR Change History

  1. From the left navigation, select Institution Settings.
  2. Click LHR Change History to open the accordion.
  3. From the LHR Change History accordion:
    • Select the Display LHR History check box to display the LHR Change History table in the details of a LHR.
    • Select the Retain User Information check box if you would like the LHR Change History table to retain and include user information.

       Note: Deselecting Retain User Information will delete all user information regarding LHR/Item History that was previously stored. This data cannot be restored after the function is disabled. If you re-enable this option in the future, the data will be saved from that point forward.

  4. Click Save to apply your changes.
