Canadian libraries chose WorldCat Local

Share this on social media:

Novanet and University of New Brunswick will use OCLC's WorldCat Local service. This service is said to combine the cooperative power of OCLC member libraries worldwide with the ability to use WorldCat.org as a solution for local discovery and delivery services.

WorldCat Local presents localised search results that are most relevant to the library user while also allowing the user to search the entire WorldCat database of more than 100 million records. It builds on WorldCat.org, which allows web access to the world's largest database for discovery of materials held in libraries.

Novanet, which is a consortium of libraries in Nova Scotia, Canada, and the University of New Brunswick are the first library systems outside the USA to use WorldCat Local.
