National Library of New Zealand partners with OCLC

Share this on social media:

The National Library of New Zealand will add some 8 million records and the holdings of 275 libraries to WorldCat, the database of materials held in libraries around the globe. As a result, records of items held in New Zealand libraries will be visible to web searchers worldwide through the OCLC WorldCat.org service, or through popular search engines such as Google and Yahoo!

From 1 July, all libraries in New Zealand will have access to the WorldCat database to catalogue their library materials and will become governing members of OCLC, the world's largest library cooperative. Governing members benefit from voting representation on the OCLC Members Council.
