OCLC and Google Are Making Book Searches Link to Libraries

OCLC announced the following:

OCLC and Google are working together to link directly from books discovered through Google Search to print book records in the catalogs of hundreds of U.S. libraries. This feature is part of Google’s ongoing effort to connect people to their local libraries through Google Search.

The initial phase of this new program connects people using Google Search to the catalogs of hundreds of U.S. libraries whose books are cataloged in WorldCat, a worldwide database of information about library collections, and made available for discovery on the web. The program is expected to expand to more libraries and connect to more library resources in the future. …

These links to library catalogs can be found in several different displays of Google Search results for specific books, including under ‘Get’ or ‘Borrow’ the book options in the knowledge panel, or within Google Books previews.

For more information, read the press release.
