In March 2014, OCLC will release WorldCat® Discovery Services, a new suite of cloud-based applications that brings the FirstSearch® and WorldCat® Local services together. WorldCat Discovery is only available as an unlimited subscription. You may continue to use the per-search searches in your account until access to FirstSearch ends. You may exchange unused searches for credit on your OCLC account and use it toward the purchase of optional WorldCat Discovery Services features or other OCLC services.

  • Subscription: An annual subscription to the databases you select
  • Per-search: Purchasing in blocks of 500 searches

Your OCLC representative can help you determine the level of access (simultaneous logons from your library to OCLC FirstSearch, ranging from 1 to unlimited) that your library will need, as well as the databases your library's users will want.
