WorldCat is the global data network that powers the community, providing libraries with comprehensive insights into other libraries’ collections and services. It is the single most important asset the library community has. WorldCat consists of the WorldCat bibliographic catalog, which includes everything that is available to library users in our member libraries. It also includes the WorldCat knowledge base, which connects users to the electronic content provided by their library. Finally, the WorldCat registry, which includes information about library services and contacts to help people find the library online. Having your library and its collections registered in WorldCat is the most reliable way to ensure your entire collection is completely visible and accessible to your users.
