Worldcat Identities

Worldcat Identities went into production as part of Worldcat.org over the weekend. It is currently linked to from under the ‘details’ tab. We will be interested to see how it is used and review other integration options over time.
One nice feature is that the Tag Cloud (these are FAST headings derived from Library of Congress Subject Headings in the records) sends searches back into Worldcat.

Thom discusses the implementation over on Outgoing.

One thought on “Worldcat Identities”

  1. It’s interesting to note that “Fast headings” appears as the label on the tab at the top of the screen, but the subtitle in situ is “Associated Subjects”.
    Did usability testing establish which term people understand better ?
