OCLC has added an option through which FirstSearch can search Z39.50 library catalogs from records in the OCLC FirstSearch service and display this local holdings information within a FirstSearch record.

This expands the existing option for libraries to establish links from FirstSearch to Web-based library catalogs for access to local holdings information. Library staff can set up and manage this option through the Linking==>Z39.50 Library Resources section of the FirstSearch administrative module.
