EBSCOhost Now Links to OCLC’s WorldCat

EBSCO has announced an agreement with OCLC through which affiliated OCLC users can link from results in EBSCOhost to corresponding records in the WorldCat database. With EBSCO's powerful linking technology, subscribers can activate numerous links as deemed appropriate, including those to databases, e-journals, document delivery and interlibrary loan services, OPACs, book services, commercial linking servers such as SFX and LinkFinderPlus, and many others.

For more than 3 decades, libraries have shared their catalogs electronically to create the OCLC WorldCat database of bibliographic information. WorldCat offers more than 48 million bibliographic records—representing 400 languages—and more than 800 million holdings locations vital for collection development, cataloging, authority control, and retrospective conversion services.

Oliver Pesch, EBSCO's chief technical officer, said: "Initially the WorldCat links will provide holdings information for book records in EBSCOhost databases, with links to WorldCat serials holdings coming in a few weeks. In the future users will be able to launch WorldCat subject searches from within EBSCOhost."
