WorldCat features: May 2009 Archives
Coming soon, you will be able to view a library profile page for each WorldCat library. From the list of libraries on the item details page and from your favorite libraries list in the user profile - you can access this new page with even more valuable information about a library including location and contact info, and links to the library's website, catalog and virtual reference.
(Note: This information is pulled from the WorldCat Registry - library staff may want to check your WorldCat Registry information to make sure it is up to date.)
The library profile will also include a list of recent items added to WorldCat by this library. WorldCat will create this list each month for item holding set the previous month - this list will be ordered by items with the most holdings across WorldCat.
If a library offers the WorldCat Local service and the user is not currently at that site, this page will let them know it is available and allow them to execute a search that takes them to the WorldCat Local site for availability information and more.
And this is just the start; we plan to evolve this area with more exciting additions in the upcoming months
