Development of UK public library catalogue progresses to next stage

OCLC has announced that its project to develop a Web-based, national public library catalogue has now been made available to a selection of pilot institutions. Over the next two months a small group of libraries will have the opportunity to review the catalogue, and feedback on things such as data quality and overall user experience. Developed in conjunction with The Combined Regions (TCR) and based on holdings indexed in WorldCat, the world's largest database of bibliographic information, the customised union catalogue provides a view of the 9 million holdings contributed by the 149 local authorities that currently subscribe to UnityUK, the UK's only nationwide network for resource sharing
