Europeana Records Are Now Available via OCLC's WorldCat

OCLC teamed up with Europeana to add records for millions of digitized items to WorldCat so they can be easily discoverable and freely accessible for library patrons. “Funded by the European Commission, Europeana provides free access to more than 50 million records of books, recordings, artwork and more, in a wide range of subject areas. Over 24 million of these are openly licensed and freely available for work, research and learning,” according to the press release.

“We are thrilled to add rich, valuable resources from the Europeana Collections to WorldCat,” says Suzanne Kemperman, OCLC’s director of business development and publisher relations. “Libraries and library users want access to free and open content. With Europeana records in WorldCat, researchers can find and access this content by searching libraries’ collections.”
