WorldCat® Discovery Services support

WorldCat® Discovery Services provide a new suite of cloud-based applications that brings the FirstSearch and WorldCat Local services together. WorldCat Discovery is now available to your library as part of your existing subscription to FirstSearch. It will fully replace FirstSearch in 2015 following a year-long transition period during which the two services will operate in parallel.
