OCLC and ExLibris have successfully implemented linking from ExLibris' SFX to WorldCat on FirstSearch. Libraries that subscribe to both WorldCat on FirstSearch and SFX can establish links from a range of OpenURL-enabled resources, via the SFX link server, so that users can connect to WorldCat to discover holdings at their local library.
Users with access to this feature will view library holdings in their region, plus all the fulfillment features the library employs in FirstSearch, such as links to OCLC interlibrary loan, links to Infotrieve for document delivery, and links to NetLibrary eBooks. Information on setting up the link is available in the SFX Target Setup documentation. Users may also e-mail or call 866-232-0202 toll free for technical support. ExLibris is the latest company to link to WorldCat. Other participating partners include EBSCO and Bowker's booksinprint.com.
