Find WorldCat Entities to Improve Resource Discoverability Through Connections

Funded in part by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in partnership with an advisory group of 28 libraries, and built on OCLC’s decades of linked data research, OCLC has released more than 150 million WorldCat Entities. We’ve made these works and persons entities freely available for you to search, view, and gather URIs to add to your local bibliographic records. These linked data connections help empower serendipitous discoveries through connections that surface related items before researchers even know to look for them. Join us for a brief discussion of our history with linked data initiatives, an overview of WorldCat Entities, and a glimpse into our plans for the future.
