  7. Projects • “Discovery View” of WorldCat • WorldCat linking program • FirstSearch enhancements • WorldCat Union Catalog Service

  12. Document Icons and Tabs

  13. Record Display

  14. Book Summary

  15. What’s next for WorldCat? • December 2001 • More evaluative content • Scoping for small groups • Integration of the ECO/ArticleFirst dbases • February 2002 • Sort results by library holdings • Limiting by “sub-document” types • Ongoing work • Oracle rearchitecture -- Enables full scoping, collocation, unicode, and more . . .

  16. WorldCat Linking Program

  17. WorldCat Linking Program • Problem: Library collections are “invisible” in portions of the library portal and on the broader Web • OCLC approach: Use WorldCat to connect patrons to library collections from • Licensed services offered by the library • Popular Web sites outside of library portals

  18. WorldCat Linking ProgramHow it works . . . • OCLC partners with trusted third parties • Reference service providers, search engines, local system vendors, book sellers, Web sites, etc. • Partners link to WorldCat • Known item or subject searches • Current partners • Links return . . . • Metadata about the item(s) • Holdings information for relevant libraries (generic or custom) • Links to library catalogs and library fulfillment options (libraries control these links!)

  19. Check Catalog An example Item record or results list in partner application Find in Libraries Link “Find at a library” link

  20. WorldCat Linking Program - Status • Interface available 9/16/2001 • Alibris link enabled 10/3/2001 • Testing with additional partners • Program available in Q1 2002

  21. FirstSearch Enhancements

  22. FirstSearch focus • Interface: • Tighter integration with the library portal • Gateway/portal services • Patron customization • Content: • Develop WorldCat & OCLC content • Load content that is unique to OCLC • Grow Electronic Collections Online

  23. Fulfillment Options Record Display • Z39.50 Databases • Point-and-click configuration for ~170 databases ISO ILL Remote Circulation Local Holdings Article linking Document Suppliers Local Catalogs - OPACs as FS databases FirstSearch Databases OCLC Dbases 3rd Party A&I Periodical Full Text FirstSearch as a Gateway to Library Collections Library Portal FirstSearch FirstSearch Database

  24. Tighter Integration with the Library Portal • Integration with local/regional catalogs • Display local Z39.50 holdings (Q1 2002) • Display Z39.50 OPACs as FS databases (Q3 2002) • Remote authentication with local patron files (TBD) • Linking services • Linking from WorldCat to Web Booksellers (available) • OpenURL linking to remote services (Q4 2001) • Article linking for non-OCLC full text (Q1 2002) • Linking to remote ISO ILL services (TBD) • Linking to non-FS Z39.50 dbases (TBD)

  25. Display Z39.50 local holdings

  26. WorldCat Union Catalog Service

  27. WorldCat Union Catalog Solution • Problem • Managing regional catalogs in multi-type consortia with disparate local systems • Hosted solutions are expensive, incomplete and difficult to manage • Distributed solutions suffer from performance problems and tend to be incomplete

  28. WorldCat Union Catalog Solution • OCLC concept: WorldCat Union Catalog • Would offer a hosted alternative to local installations • Based on a “scoped” view of WorldCat • Would integrate batchload, cataloging, ILL, “patron” catalog into single service • Rationale: could reduce local technical burden, offer expanded service and lower costs • Status: Under investigation

  29.
