Google to Link from Google Book Search to WorldCat Under New Deal with OCLC
From OCLC's press release:
Under terms of the agreement, OCLC member libraries participating in the Google Book Search program may share their WorldCat-derived MARC records with Google to better facilitate discovery of library collections through Google.
Google will link from Google Book Search to WorldCat.org, which will drive traffic to library OPACs and other library services. Google will share data and links to digitized books with OCLC, which will make it possible for OCLC to represent the digitized collections of OCLC member libraries in WorldCat.
