August 2013 data update now available for the WorldCat knowledge base

The WorldCat knowledge base continues to grow with the recent addition of new providers and collections. The details for this month’s update are now available in the full release notes. Highlights include the addition of a new provider American Society of Civil Engineers Library and new collections from American Society of Civil Engineers Library, Credo, EBSCOhost, Emerald, Gale group, JSTOR, Muse, Ovid, and Oxford University Press.

This monthly update along with previous updates and the list of collections included in the WorldCat knowledge base, are available on the WorldCat knowledge base support site and also on the WorldShare Management Services User Support Center (OCLC Service Configuration credentials required). The list of collections spreadsheet represents all of the collections available in the WorldCat knowledge base. It indicates which collections are open access and which are customizable. It also includes the percentage of items in each collection that contain an OCLC number. Items with OCLC numbers can have holdings set in WorldCat and/or can have MARC records output.
