“Open WorldCat system”

一個非常強大的書目搜索工具公開給大眾使用﹕

 

Open WorldCat, using limited MARC fields, will make most of the 57 million records in WorldCat available to Google and Yahoo! Search for harvesting by the end of November 2004. At present, more than 43,000 OCLC member libraries are participating in the Open WorldCat program. This includes all libraries with holdings in WorldCat, except those that have declined.
