OCLC Creates Discovery Catalog for Arabic Records

OCLC unveiled the Arabic Discovery Catalog (with information pages in both English and Arabic), which “brings together bibliographic records from libraries located in Arab countries into one catalog to enhance the discoverability and visibility of these collections for international research.” Built on the WorldCat Discovery platform, it features the records of more than 3.8 million Arabic resources, with more to be added.

“The Arabic Discovery Catalog supports specific cultural and regional needs around improved discoverability and reach, nationally and internationally. It is our hope that this will mark a significant step forward for libraries and their users in the region, providing greater access and discoverability of these collections,” says Eric van Lubeek, VP of global library services and managing director for OCLC EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) and APAC (Asia and Pacific).
