|WorldCat Local, the OCLC discovery service that offers users integrated access to collections of electronic, digital and physical library materials, has been enhanced with several new features, including:
- Integrated link resolution. Based on data in the WorldCat knowledge base, this feature resolves inbound OpenURL requests received from citation sources outside of WorldCat Local. It complements the outbound linking already available in the service from “View Now” links in search results.
- Increased visibility of local data. Local data, such as local subject headings, uniform titles and notes, now displays to users in WorldCat Local. This additional data complements the full bibliographic data from the WorldCat database already available in the service. Libraries that load their local data via OCLC’s Batchload service can take advantage of more visibility of this information now.
- Access to course reserves. Now you can provide access to course reserves through your WorldCat Local site. Results will include reserve items found in the WorldCat database as well as temporary items not cataloged in WorldCat.
