The University of Alberta Libraries late last year created the 2,000,000,000th holding record in WorldCat, marking a major milestone for this unique library resource. For the past 40 years, libraries world-wide have worked together to build, sustain and improve WorldCat. These cooperative efforts get information seekers to the answers they need, and help other libraries be more efficient.
Today’s information consumers need easy, intuitive access to a comprehensive collection of the wealth of resources libraries make available. WorldCat provides a hub for that data, as well as services and applications to find anything held in library collections, efficiently and quickly from anywhere.
