Success stories

“Many of the WorldCat sets represent subject areas requiring cataloging expertise an individual library may not be able to draw upon. As a Law Library that has provided cataloging for several sets, our catalogers are able to approach these sets with a level of subject analysis that truly increases patron access.”

Richard Amelung

Head of Technical Services

Saint Louis University Law Library

“Our library often buys large sets of microforms and thanks to OCLC WorldCat Collection Sets we were able to provide access to many of these sets. This year we were able to increase our title count by 11,691 with minimal cost and minimal effort. We look forward to continued participation by libraries in providing cataloging that we are unable to create.”
