WorldCat Content Coming to Credo General Reference Service

OCLC and Credo Reference announced that they signed an agreement to integrate the WorldCat Search API into the Credo General Reference service, its flagship content application. With this new agreement, OCLC member libraries that subscribe to the Credo General Reference service will be able to retrieve a list of books from WorldCat related to the topic of their Credo Reference search.

Under this new partnership, authenticated users will be able to access the Credo General Reference service from the library or Credo Reference website and perform a search for encyclopedic entries. Each entry includes a side panel listing books that are related to the topic generated from a search of WorldCat using the library’s key to the WorldCat Search API. Each book includes a link to the library’s OPAC or discovery application to get additional information, such as shelf status.

Credo Reference expects to release the functionality later this month. Libraries will be able to activate the functionality by registering their key to the WorldCat Search API within the application. Libraries that do not already have a key to the API can visit the OCLC website for more information on how to obtain a key.
