The WorldCat identities Network allows users to explore the interconnectivity and relationships between WorldCat Identities.
The ID Network uses the Identities API, which provides each Identity with up to 10 related identities. Users can easily jump from Identity Network to Identity Network by selecting the name in the Identity Network Map. An Identity can be a person, a thing (the Titanic), a fictitious character (Harry Potter), or a corporation (IBM). Additionally, the app provides links to WorldCat and Identities for more in depth information for a given identity.
