Users of, WorldCat Local and WorldCat Local “quick start” can now search all OCLC electronic resource services through an upgraded interface. Integrated search results include resources from all services - OCLC FirstSearch® databases, NetLibrary™ eBooks and eAudiobooks, Electronic Collections Online™ eJournals, ArchiveGrid® archival collection descriptions and CAMIO® (the Catalog of Art Museum Images Online).

A simple search box connects users with content in OCLC electronic in a user-friendly experience that delivers relevancy ranking of locally-owned items cataloged in WorldCat, faceted browsing and simultaneous searching of an unlimited number of databases. Soon, users also benefit from access to social tools such as personal profiles, reviews and ratings and list creation and sharing that are not available in existing service interfaces.

This enhanced access is the first step toward more full integration of OCLC electronic resources, with the goal of eventually making, WorldCat Local and WorldCat Local “quick start” the primary interface to these services. OCLC plans to release enhancements to the new interface on an ongoing basis
