OCLC Working with SkillSoft to Add Records for Books24x7 Digital Book Catalog to WorldCat
OCLC is working with SkillSoft to add records for the Books24x7 digital book catalog to WorldCat.
SkillSoft’s growing selection of over 30,000 titles in a variety of subject areas will be represented in WorldCat with a link to the Books24x7 platform.
In addition, OCLC is loading the Books24x7 collection information into the WorldCat knowledge base, enabling OCLC cataloging libraries to easily set holdings in WorldCat for the titles to which they subscribe. WorldCat Local authenticated users will then be able to link directly to Books24x7 titles subscribed to and made available by their library from the corresponding WorldCat records.
