OCLC adds IEEE and full-text search to WorldCat Local

 

Full-text searching is now available in WorldCat Local, OCLC's discovery-to-delivery service that offers users integrated access to more than 922 million items worldwide. The new search functionality follows the addition of full-text content from IEEE to the WorldCat Local central index.

Full-text searching is now available in WorldCat Local, OCLC's discovery-to-delivery service that offers users integrated access to more than 922 million items worldwide. This latest enhancement creates an even more powerful search experience, with the addition of searching words within full-text articles.

The new search functionality follows the addition of full-text content from IEEE to the WorldCat Local central index. The IEEE Publications full-text database provides a comprehensive collection of resources to support research on technology topics.

WorldCat Local users may search collections indexed in the WorldCat Local central index, based on agreements with content providers.  Searchable collections now include IEEE, BioOne and Emerald, and new content from additional sources will be added on an ongoing basis.

Library staff may set their default keyword search to a new "keyword plus full text" search. In addition, two new indexes, a "full text only" and a "keyword + full text" are available from the advanced search page for a WorldCat Local-implemented library. Libraries with WorldCat Local may enable the full-text search functionality within OCLC Service Configuration.
