The Web is the native environment of information seekers. OCLC Research recognizes that to be integrated into the Web, traditional library data must be transformed in various ways. We are analyzing the data in WorldCat and other sources to derive new meaning, insights, and services for use by libraries and others on the Web. Our work includes:
Aggregating library-created data
Leveraging OCLC members' collected knowledge investment for efficiency and re-use by libraries and other organizations.
