E-content in the OCLC Global Library Co-operative

Author:

Jay Jordan

Abstract

In the next stage of the digital library, co-operation will be more important than ever. OCLC, the world's largest library cooperative, intends to help institutions manage their e-content from e-journals to e-books to emerging collections of digital objects. WorldCat, co-operatively built and maintained by OCLC and its member libraries, is being transformed from a bibliographic database to a knowledge hub that will help people identify and connect diverse content in a networked world. Emerging standards, new linking tools, and new techniques for harvesting metadata are among the topics explored.
