In March 2014, OCLC will release WorldCat® Discovery Services, a new suite of cloud-based applications that brings the FirstSearch® and WorldCat® Local services together.

The new suite will enable people to discover more than electronic, digital, and physical resources in libraries around the world through a single search of both WorldCat® and a central index that represents nearly 2,000 e-content collections. This will make it possible for 18,000+ FirstSearch libraries to offer a richer discovery experience.

 

In the video below, John McCullough, OCLC Product Manager for Discovery Services, discusses the features of WorldCat Discovery Services during a presentation at ALA Midwinter in January 2014, Philadelphia, PA.
