WorldCat® knowledge base

The WorldCat knowledge base combines data about your library's electronic resources with linking features to make your collections easier to find, share, manage and use. The WorldCat knowledge base also helps you streamline electronic resource workflows.

Unlike data in a traditional knowledge base, WorldCat knowledge base data is not tied to a particular application. When you register your collections in the WorldCat knowledge base, you enable key functionality, including automatic management of electronic resources and easy linking to e-resources from search results.
