OCLC Begins Pilot Project on E-Serials

OCLC ( will begin a pilot project later this month that will make it easy to find and use full-text electronic journals in library collections. The pilot will involve 20 libraries and four partners—TDNet, EBSCO, Serials Solutions, and Ex Libris. The pilot will make e-serials visible in WorldCat and will expose those records to searchers on the open Web through the Open WorldCat program. The pilot is expected to last 4 months.

During the pilot, OCLC will receive monthly holdings statements representing the e-serials collections of participating libraries from partners in the pilot or, in some cases, directly from the libraries. OCLC will automatically set and maintain those holdings in WorldCat, the OCLC online union catalog, on behalf of the participating libraries. This collaboration will allow pilot libraries to efficiently contribute their e-serials collections to WorldCat and ensure that these holdings are current and accurate. Pilot libraries will also register their OpenURL resolvers with OCLC, which will allow authenticated end users to easily access full-text online content.
