What causes a 404 not found error and how do I fix it

  • 404 not found errors can be caused by a broken link but also may be due to missing Provider Settings within OCLC WorldShare Collection Manager Institution Settings, and you'll want to confirm those settings.  If the issue is a broken link or you have questions about the provider/institution settings, contact OCLC Support for assistance, including links, and screenshots (full screenshots preferred).
