OCLC to Open WorldCat Searching to the World

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on July 17, 2006

From Paula J. Hane: “In a move designed to reach users outside library environments, OCLC is planning to launch a new destination site and downloadable search box for searching the content of libraries participating in WorldCat. Scheduled for a beta release sometime in August 2006, the new WorldCat.org site will continue OCLC’s efforts begun with its Open WorldCat program to make library resources more visible to Web users and to increase awareness of libraries as a primary source of reliable information.”
