OCLC partners with MetaMetrics to provide Lexile Measures for WorldCat

 

Widely adopted reading metric will help students find ability-appropriate books in world's largest library catalog.

MetaMetrics, developer of The Lexile Framework for Reading, and OCLC are pleased to announce that they have significantly expanded their relationship. For the past few years MetaMetrics' popular "Find a Book" tool has utlized OCLC's widely-used WorldCat.org to connect readers to libraries where books at their reading level can be found. OCLC and MetaMetrics have taken another big step in their literacy partnership by directly providing Lexile measure for more than 125,000 titles in WorldCat.

OCLC and MetaMetrics have worked together previously to promote Summer Reading programs with WorldCat tools that make a difference to students' academic achievements.
