WorldCat Local - Incorrect Holdings

Patrons may find records in WorldCat Local that are not in the Classic Catalog. The WorldCat Local instructions under "Get This Item" may tell the patron to go to the circulation desk for assistance. Please get the OCLC number for the item and inform Clara about these occurrences. She will delete the record. Let her know about other errors or problems. For now, we do not have control over all the canned messages that patrons see in the WorldCat Local interface.

With my patron, I explained that there are still some errors in the new WorldCat Local database and that we are working to fix them. I thanked her for bringing it to our attention.
