French Sudoc records added to WorldCat

Share this on social media:

Nine million records from Système Universitaire de documentation (Sudoc), the cataloguing system for French academic libraries, will be added into WorldCat.

Sudoc is managed by l’Agence Bibliographique de l’Enseignement Supérieur (ABES) in France.  As a result of ABES's agreement with OCLC, which manages WorldCat, collections of 110 participating Sudoc institutions that represent over 1,000 libraries will be visible to searchers worldwide through WorldCat.org.

The agreement to load Sudoc records into WorldCat follows that of the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF), which signed a similar agreement in June. The addition of Sudoc records in WorldCat is planned for the first quarter of 2010.
