New Option to Have WorldCat Local Return "Only Return Peer-Reviewed Articles" Now Live

The new optional limiter was mentioned in a tweet earlier today by Vice President, Research, and Chief Strategist at OCLC, Lorcan Dempsey. His tweet also includes a link to WorldCat Local at Washington St. University. When you click on the advanced search link you’ll spot the “only return peer-reviewed articles” option near the bottom of the page under the “popular limits” header.
