Event Description

The WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway provides you with a free, self-service tool for sharing the metadata of your unique digital content to WorldCat—the premier database of library materials. Once your metadata is in WorldCat, your collections are more visible and discoverable by end users who search WorldCat.org, WorldCat Local and WorldCat Local "quick start", as well as Google, Yahoo! and other popular Web sites. Ultimately, users will click through to your local servers to access the digital item, viewing it immediately on their screen—anytime, anywhere. Your metadata records retain their local identity while maximizing the global visibility of your digital content.
