hello Nate,

it appears you are viewing the record via WorldCat (what I used to think of WorldCat FirstSearch), whereas I am viewing it via OCLC Connexion. The "FirstSearch" version lacks the LOC links and only shows the links to the German library consortium documents which you mention in your email. The OCLC Connexion view contains three links for table of contents, two to the German documents (these work fine for me also) and one for the Library of Congress document, which is the link that doesn't work for me. If it's working for you at LC, that would appear to indicate that there is some kind of firewall situation going on, as Iris suspected -- but I would be interested in hearing if there are others besides Gerald who have noted problems with these links.

I just tried viewing this record via Library of Congress -- the TOC links that appear in the bib record are LC's links, and they won't open for me (using Firefox, anyway -- I will experiment and see what happens if I switch browsers)

best,
Charles Croissant

Both “table of contents” links on that record in worldcat do not point to LC,

https://www.worldcat.org/title/oxford-readings-in-greek-religion/oclc/44152856<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.worldcat.org/title/oxford-readings-in-greek-religion/oclc/44152856__;!!K543PA!Z7A6EghTterAcaIJGV1a0yW-Cd9x_s_k-y_4st96oO8lKwht6GTE1wK_Hdkp_-apY0sMtQ$>

here’s what I see there: http://bvbr.bib-bvb.de:8991/exlibris/aleph/a22_1/apache_media/979R4F9SD68NVGC1KI96Q2MVYN3E1N.pdf<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://bvbr.bib-bvb.de:8991/exlibris/aleph/a22_1/apache_media/979R4F9SD68NVGC1KI96Q2MVYN3E1N.pdf__;!!K543PA!Z7A6EghTterAcaIJGV1a0yW-Cd9x_s_k-y_4st96oO8lKwht6GTE1wK_Hdkp_-Y9KvMKXA$>



But I looked it up in our LC catalog:

https://catalog.loc.gov/vwebv/search?searchCode=STNO&searchType=1&recCount=25&searchArg=0198721919<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://catalog.loc.gov/vwebv/search?searchCode=STNO&searchType=1&recCount=25&searchArg=0198721919__;!!K543PA!Z7A6EghTterAcaIJGV1a0yW-Cd9x_s_k-y_4st96oO8lKwht6GTE1wK_Hdkp_-YQQTyGIw$>

and it has both TOC and publisher statements that work for me:

http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/toc/fy032/2001269703.html<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/toc/fy032/2001269703.html__;!!K543PA!Z7A6EghTterAcaIJGV1a0yW-Cd9x_s_k-y_4st96oO8lKwht6GTE1wK_Hdkp_-akayAzaA$>

http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0611/2001269703-d.html<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0611/2001269703-d.html__;!!K543PA!Z7A6EghTterAcaIJGV1a0yW-Cd9x_s_k-y_4st96oO8lKwht6GTE1wK_Hdkp_-YTXB4d_g$>

If this is what you are referring to, then there is maybe a firewall problem, since I’m inside.

Interesting.



Are you finding that ALL of such field-data is not opening, or only some?



I wonder if this data is still being prioritized and if any shifting in LC data has changed access



curious



thank you

Recently, I have found that 856 fields in OCLC records that point to Library of Congress tables of contents or publisher descriptions are not working for me. I get the error message "we're having trouble finding that site."



Is anyone else experiencing this?



An example is OCLC# 44152856 -- Oxford readings in Greek religion.



I would be grateful for any light someone can shed on this,



thanks,
