OCLC’s world map

OCLC has a new feature attached to WorldCat which highlights the involvement of national libraries in the catalogue. Using their interactive world map you can access information such as how many holdings the library has on WorldCat and there are links directly to the libraries’ websites. Simply click on the country, or select it from a drop down list, and you’re away!

There’s also an interesting blog entry on Metalogue for those who’d like to know a bit more of the history of WorldCat and the involvement of national libraries around the world.
