Share this on social media:

WorldCat Local, OCLC’s discovery service, will serve as a single point of access and delivery of electronic, print and digital resources to the National Library of South Africa and 15 academic institutions, thanks to a deal arranged by OCLC and Sabinet, OCLC’s partner in South Africa.

With WorldCat Local, links to the full-text of licensed electronic content promise users seamless access to all the library’s resources from a single search box.
