WorldCat.org now available for mobile phones

Entry Categories: OCLC News  

Now your library materials on WorldCat.org are searchable through mobile devices, thanks to a new WorldCat mobile pilot that launched this month. The six month long pilot will operate in the US and Canada, to gather data which will inform future WorldCat mobile efforts.

Learn more about the WorldCat mobile pilot

Developed through a partnership with the mobile-technology leader Boopsie, mobile access to WorldCat.org provides a convenient way for information seekers to find known items in libraries and to identify libraries near their location quickly. The pilot also complements the recently released experimental WorldCat app for iPhone, built with the WorldCat Search API and available for download from the Apple site.

To download the application, go to www.worldcat.org/m on your mobile phone’s Web browser.
