Cataloging & Metadata Services Transform OCLCs shared cataloging services to serve a broader community of member institutions, and enhance the breadth and depth of the metadata in WorldCat for both electronic and print resources. An enriched WorldCat is crucial for meeting the needs of todays information seekers in a web-based environment.
The EnvironmentDramatic increase in the need for authoritative bibliographic information for electronic and print.New information exchange and harvesting protocols like OAIThe traditional bibliographic record is not enough to satisfy the raised expectations of the patron. A large number of library professionals (40-50%) are eligible for retirement in the next ten years. Professional catalogers in particular are not being developed in library information science programs thus a whole new generation of users with different expectations must be served.
What does it mean?Copy cataloging will be done more and more by untrained staff using expert systems which hide the complexity of MARC and AACR2.CatExpressNew expert systemsShelf-ready services will become more common place for the processing of physical materials.PromptCatTechProMore original cataloging will be created via metadata harvesting, by materials vendors, publishers, OCLC, etc.

The library cooperative can become a ubiquitous presence in the web while each library maintains its own brand/image.
SCOPE Selection, Collect, Organize, and Provide Eternal Access
Move beyond L2L services by leveraging WorldCat to deliver 7 by 24 hour access to e-content and materials vendors.
This is the service view of the OCLC cooperative that we have been working with since last year 3 service areas each of which uses and contributes to WorldCat. As the arrows suggest, these services are interrelated -- an increase in metadata, for instance, creates new opportunities for delivering content and offering fulfillment services.
Working together, all three areas create a self-reinforcing cycle that supports library cooperation through Extended WorldCat, while at the same time creating new opportunities for expanding cooperative activity into new areas.
WorldCat presently supports cataloging, resource sharing and reference services for libraries. Last year, libraries cataloged 55 million items via WorldCat and arranged 8.6 million online interlibrary loans. Library users did over 64 million reference searches on WorldCat. By the time I finish this sentence, a new record will have entered WorldCat. It now contains more than 45 million bibliographic records, and grows by over 2 million records a year. Our new strategy calls for taking this extraordinary library resource to an even higher and more useful level. CLICK TO WORLDCAT TOMORROW
Our strategy is to make WorldCat both bigger and better. It will move beyond bibliograp
