Worldcat from OCLC
14 August 2006 4 Comments
Reading The Chronicle: Wired Campus blog today I came across the Worldcat global library catalog service. I was impressed by the quick response. As an experiment I attempted to see whether Bond’s holdings were part of this effort. I searched for a book on Wikis (Wiki: Web Collaboration, Ebersbach et al, Springer 2006) that I knew was in Bond’s library. Only holdings at ANU, Monash and USA showed up.
The USA entry was also interesting in that it referred to an electronic link to the text. Being a Springer monograph this would be extremely useful in the IT area. I wonder whether our library will eventually have electronic access in this way?
