National Library of Australia – OCLC Agreement signed today

The Director General of the National Library of Australia, Jan Fullerton, and the President of OCLC (the Online Computer Library Center), Jay Jordan, today signed a collaborative services agreement opening up access to two significant catalogues.

From 1 July 2007, all Australian libraries who subscribe to Libraries Australia will have unlimited cataloguing and search access to WorldCat, which makes available records from 110 countries.

The agreement ensures that bibliographic records between the 2 services will be exchanged on a regular basis, and as a consequence, holdings in Australian library collections will be available internationally through OCLC’s Open WorldCat service.
