In the past, we have used OCLC’s “FirstSearch” web page to search WorldCat, OCLC’s database of worldwide library holdings, along with several other research databases.

Over the past years, OCLC phased out many of those research databases and launched a new public face for WorldCat – –  a more mobile device-friendly interface with social networking capabilities and other enhancements.


As of mid-July, we are pointing our links to so that we can better understand how well this new search tool suits us.

So please search to your heart’s delight and then send any feedback by email to or comment on this post.

By the way, you can always find the go-link at go/worldcat.
