When you participate in the OCLC cooperative by contributing metadata and subscribing to WorldCat® Discovery, your library's records will appear in WorldCat.org search results at no additional cost. For most geographies, you do not order WorldCat.org. It is a received benefit of your participation in the cooperative through WorldCat.
To get started:
- Contribute local holdings information and other metadata via one or more of the following OCLC services: Connexion®, CatExpress®, Contract Cataloging™, Batchload, WorldCat Cataloging Partners, CONTENTdm® or the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway. (Note: many of these services require an annual subscription or may have other costs associated with them.)
- Subscribe to WorldCat Discovery.
After that, metadata you contribute is searchable on WorldCat.org and is also available through various syndication partnerships on the wider Web, including such services as Google, Yahoo! and Goodreads.
