Spotlight on WorldCat Discovery Services
Is your library ready for WorldCat Discovery?

Migrating from FirstSearch? Not sure what to do?

Start Here

WorldCat® Discovery Services is a new suite of cloud-based applications that brings the FirstSearch® and WorldCat® Local services together. The new suite enables people to discover more than 1.5 billion electronic, digital and physical resources in libraries around the world through a single search of both WorldCat® and a central index that represents more than 2,000 e-content collections.

WorldCat Discovery is available to all current FirstSearch subscribers as part of existing subscriptions.

You can access the training you need to use the new system, including tutorials, recorded classes, and the current instructor-led training schedule on our
WorldCat Discovery Services training page
