WorldCat Update

WorldCat has added the ability to create lists – lists of books, videos, music – pretty much any library resource found in WorldCat. Registration is required, but painless. Although an OCLC blog lists several uses for the lists such as book clubs, recommended reading lists, etc. – I thought their suggestion:

for the academicians among us, you could load up the required readings from a syllabus into a WorldCat list--students could see at a glance which editions/articles were available at the library, what was checked out already, available as an eBook, etc.”

might be of interest to our faculty. So go start making your lists - favorite books, CDs, movies - and check out lists by other people.
