In a couple of words, exciting news follows. Kudos to the IA and OCLC!
We are pleased to announce that the Internet Archive and OCLC have agreed to synchronize the metadata describing our digital books with OCLC’s WorldCat.
When the synchronization work is complete, library patrons will be able to discover the Internet Archive’s collection of 2.5 million digitized monographs through the libraries around the world that use OCLC’s bibliographic services. Readers searching for a particular volume will know that a digital version of the book exists in our collection.
Note: This is the Third Major Announcement from the Internet Archive This Week. See Also:
