Find nearby

mankell.gifI mentioned the find in a nearby library feature in Santa Monica Public Library below, where OpenWorldCat is used to find a book in libraries within a several mile radius.

This has now been extended throughout the catalog: there is a new link on every record that has a localized OWC search called 'Check Nearby Libraries'.

Migell Acosta, Principal Librarian - Information Management, has also created a screencast explaining the feature to library staff.

Check out the entry for Henning Mankell's One Step Behind.

How about adding lccn to the url syntax? That number might be easier for libraries to use when they place the Open WorldCat link on opac records.
