OCLC Goes Mobile And Starts Desktop Application

With two new products in the past week, OCLC obviously wants to make the life of its customers much easier. First they introduced a new NetLibrary Media Center, a desktop application that allows library patrons to easily search and listen to downloadable eAudiobooks.

The Media Center combines familiar user functions available from NetLibrary's Web-based platform to browse, search and check out materials, and adds enhanced features and functionality—such as a full-feature audio player; seamless download to a portable listening device; a new, feature-rich, easy-to-use interface; and desktop access to a library's entire eAudiobook collection—for a superior user experience.

OCLC also launched a WorldCat Mobile pilot to offer its reach collection of books on mobile devices. The WorldCat Mobile pilot allows users to search for books, find a WorldCat library nearby and map a route to find the easiest way to a participating library ( using the mapping software on the phone). To download the mobile application for your phone click here, a brief instructional video on how it works is available as well.
