The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

Managing the devilish details : a case study on using bim by Joy Gumz( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Swinerton Builders has been in the construction business since 1888. The employee-owned firm has been a leader in adopting BIM (building information modeling). This paper presents a case study in how Swinerton has used BIM, lessons learned, and how visualization can be used to better manage project complexity. In this paper, we look at how BIM is being used during the design and construction of an office building in San Francisco, California. We use the definition of BIM as it is defined in the BIM Handbook: "a modeling technology and associated set of processes to produce, communicate, and analyze building models" (Eastman et al, 2008)
