New WorldCat Features

WorldCat.org has been enhanced with a social-networking feature: Users across the Web can now add individual items cataloged in WorldCat to personalized lists. They can group items owned by SDSM&T and other WorldCat libraries, and share their lists with friends, colleagues and millions of site users.

Users can add any book, video, article or another item to a list right from its WorldCat record, or use the checkboxes and "Save to" button in WorldCat search results. Patrons can build as many lists as they like on any subject. Lists can be public—which allows other WorldCat users to search for and discover them—or private so only the list author can view them. (A list's privacy is easily changed by following its "Settings" link.) And a public list can be shared with anyone, regardless of whether they've used WorldCat before: The "Share" link lets a list author send an invitation via e-mail.
