WorldCat Local Users to Search SciVerse ScienceDirect Journals and Ebooks

OCLC and Elsevier signed an agreement that will make the full text from Elsevier’s SciVerse ScienceDirect journals and ebooks available to users of OCLC’s WorldCat Local, OCLC’s discovery and delivery service that offers access to more than 922 million items through a single search box. Authenticated users from subscribing libraries can then access the full text of these journals and ebooks. The new full-text searching feature is in addition to indexing and abstracts from Elsevier already available through WorldCat Local.

With this collaboration, Elsevier is strengthening its commitment to the library community, simplifying research for library patrons and enhancing usage of its scientific publications. “We recognize that our users are accessing information in many different ways,” says Yukun Harsono, senior vice president, Search & Discovery, Academic and Government Markets at Elsevier. “The addition of full-text articles and ebook chapters from SciVerse ScienceDirect to OCLC WorldCat stems from our continuous commitment to ensure that the content we provide is available and easily found through the discovery platforms our customers use.”

WorldCat Local is available as a stand-alone discovery and delivery service, and as part of OCLC WorldShare Management Services.

As part of this expanded partnership, Elsevier also added access to ebook data through, the web destination for broad, webscale discovery of library resources. This agreement continues OCLC’s efforts, on behalf of its member libraries, to enable access to all library collections and services through WorldCat.
