Open WorldCat Launches A Website To Attract Customers

Open WorldCat, OCLC is launching a new website WorldCat.org next month to attract more customers. Some time ago World Cat tried to open its holdings for search engines, but the famous phrase " Find it in a Library", which users had to type in a search engine to find a book was not working very well.

OCLC and its member libraries cooperatively produce and maintain WorldCat—the OCLC Online Union Catalog. More than 54,000 libraries in 109 countries and territories around the world use OCLC services to locate, acquire, catalog, lend and preserve library materials
