NEWS: 27 February 2007  OCLC has launched the WorldCat Registry, a directory for libraries and consortia, and the services they provide. The WorldCat Registry will help libraries and consortia manage and share data that define their organisations--such as institution type, location, URLs for electronic services, circulation statistics, and population served--through a single, authoritative Web platform.
