  3. The BIG PICTURE • OCLC is moving toward offering its content on a single discovery platform – WorldCat.org • This WorldCat.org platform will give libraries a variety of options for accessing materials they license and offer to patrons. • On July 1, OCLC will make available all the content licensed from OCLC through the WorldCat.org platform and user interface. This means that libraries can access all the content they license from OCLC, FirstSearch databases, NetLibrary econtent, Archive Grid and CAMIO through the WorldCat.org user interface.

  4. Objective & Timeframe Use the WorldCat.org platform and UI as the end user platform for accessing content licensed from OCLC Make all OCLC Licensed Content searchable via the platform & UI by July 1, 2009 Library Benefits Easier end user access to authoritative databases and content No additional fee to use this new option – it’s a free choice Increase value for content subscription fee as user usage increases for the same license fee No training needed Minimal change needed to make available - copy & paste an URL Existing platform access to content stays available Licensed Content Platform Project Database Searching Using the WorldCat.org UI
