OCLC has signed agreements with leading publishers and other content providers around the world to add metadata for high-quality electronic and print books, journals, databases, and other learning materials that will make their content discoverable through WorldCat Discovery.
OCLC has agreements in place with more than 400 publishers, aggregators and other content providers to supply metadata to facilitate discovery and access to key resources. OCLC has recently signed agreements with the following providers: American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), Browns Books for Students, BuildingGreen, Inc., Catholic Research Resources Alliance, DIS Magazine, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Éditions L’Harmattan, EDP Sciences, Giuffrè Francis Lefebvre, Human Kinetics, Kortext, Massachusetts Medical Society, National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), O’Reilly Media, Publications Office of the European Union, Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM), The Royal Society, Trans Tech Publications, UCBooks, University of Michigan Press, utb GmbH, vLex, Wolters Kluwer Legal Education, and Yale University Press.
Metadata from many of the content providers will also be made available to users through other OCLC services, including WorldCat.org, based on individual agreements. Details about how the metadata may be used in library management workflows will be communicated to OCLC users as the data is available.
By providing metadata and other descriptive content, the partnerships help libraries represent their electronic and physical collections more completely and efficiently.
