OCLC and Credo Reference Extend Partnership

OCLC and Credo Reference announced a special collaboration project designed to increase collection visibility and usage with library users. Credo’s Topic Pages will now be enhanced with WorldCat results to show local library materials alongside other timely, relevant web materials.

With this new project, libraries that are both OCLC members and Credo customers will receive Credo Topic Pages at no charge for an introductory period. These libraries—along with current Topic Pages subscribers—will show WorldCat results from libraries worldwide that relate to the topic being searched. Libraries can have their results customized to show only local library holdings in WorldCat, as well as other customizations such as branding and deep links back to their catalog through this special project.

A campaign announcing this new partnership will feature the tag line, “We added more data—yours.” It launched April 18, 2012, and will run through June 30.

To participate in the program, libraries that qualify for the WorldCat Search API Key can request it and agree to share it with Credo Reference. Credo Reference will then make the customizations on behalf of participating libraries. All participating libraries will receive usage statistics on their customized Credo Topic Pages at the end of the introductory period. For more information on whether your library qualifies, visit the project page at www.oclc.org/go/worldcatcredo.
