OCLC works on behalf of its members to partner with content providers in order to deliver access to as much library-provided content as possible through the WorldCat Local service.
WorldCat local vendor records are those records a WorldCat Local subscriber has licensed (usually in conjunction with associated content) for use in its catalog. Publishers of these records have restricted redistribution of the records by libraries to other sources, including OCLC. OCLC contacts publishers on behalf of WorldCat Local libraries to obtain agreements for the addition of vendor records already licensed by these libraries to WorldCat.
