OCLC Adds Collections to WorldCat
OCLC finalized agreements with a group of global publishers that will add more electronic collections to the WorldCat database.
These publisher partners will also provide resources to WorldCat’s knowledgebase of worldwide econtent that will simplify the administration process in OCLC WorldShare Metadata management services.
Librarians registered with the knowledgebase will have immediate access to new collections (available via subscription or purchase). They can use multiple applications to view metadata, making it easier to manage their library’s electronic resources.
During the next few months, OCLC plans to add collections to WorldCat from publishers including Al Manhal (Arabic peer-reviewed documents), the Ecological Society of America (ecological research results and journals), Henry Stewart Talks (online seminars on a variety of topics), New York University Press (trade books and scholarly monographs), SciELO (among other publications, Latin American open access journals), and ciando GmbH (ebook aggregation for German libraries).
