We now have a WorldCat list widget available - you can see it in action here on the right hand side of the WorldCat Blog. You can customize the widget to display items on your public WorldCat list - just copy the HTML code in to your website and include the 'List ID' for your list.
Tips for using the list widget:
+ Make sure the privacy setting for your list is set to 'Public' ('Private' lists will not display in the widget). You can check your privacy settings in the 'Settings' area when logged in to WorldCat.org and viewing a list - the link is on the top left, just under your avatar picture (see image below).
+ This List ID is the 5 digit number at the end of the URL string when you are viewing your list.
+ WorldCat Local users can customize the list widget to their domain - see the instructions in the 'Notes' section at the bottom of the widget page.
+ First time working with a WorldCat Affiliate tool? you can log in with your standard WorldCat username and password. You may be prompted for some additional affiliate information.

Soon, you will notice some exciting changes to the WorldCat item details area.
The WorldCat team has been working on updating the design to provide users with clear options to locate library materials and, where possible, to access those materials. The redesign will provide more evaluative information - and will make it easier for users to manage their items and to provide their own evaluative information about the items.
We look forward to hearing what you think.
