Content from Brill Academic Publishers Coming to WorldCat Local
A recent agreement between OCLC and Brill Academic Publishers will make Brill’s reference, book, and journal content available to library users through WorldCat Local, the OCLC discovery-to-delivery service that offers users integrated access to electronic, digital and physical library materials.
Full text of content from Brill Academic Publishers will be available for search through WorldCat.org and the Touchpoint discovery service in addition to WorldCat Local. WorldCat Local authenticated users will also be able to search Brill’s abstract and index databases, including Index Islamicus, which has been the leading bibliography on Islam and the Muslim world for almost 100 years.
Brill Academic Publishers is an independent academic publishing house with a rich history and strong international focus, specializing in the humanities and life sciences. Main subject areas include History, Islam/Oriental Studies, and Religion, as well as specialist scientific fields.
Headquartered in Leiden, the Netherlands, Brill also has an office in the U.S. and a representative office in Japan. Publications are predominantly in English and largely comprise monographs or books in series, encyclopedias, and some eighty periodicals. OCLC will index metadata for primary sources, reference works, books, and journals from Brill.
WorldCat Local provides access to more than 800 million items, including books, journals, and databases from international publishers; the digital collections of groups like HathiTrust, OAIster, and Google Books; open access materials; and the collective resources of libraries worldwide through WorldCat.
