Spanish consortium BUCLE implements WorldCat Local
"The Spanish consortium BUCLE (Consorcio de Bibliotecas Universitarias de Castilla y León) is the first institution in Spain to implement OCLC WorldCat Local as its new search and discovery service. WorldCat Local delivers single-search-box access to more than 800 million items in libraries' electronic, digital and physical collections. BUCLE launched WorldCat Local as a group solution for the university libraries of Burgos, León, Salamanca and Valladolid. It will be available to the universities' more than 100,000 registered library users by April 30, 2011. With WorldCat Local, library users are not only able to access the library's local bibliographic records but also the titles from the BUCLE group catalog and from the OCLC WorldCat database"
