November 12, 2010 – A new agreement between OCLC and EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) will create more value for libraries that subscribe to services from OCLC and EBSCO. Among other benefits that this partnership brings, libraries will be able to use EBSCO Discovery Service to facilitate interlibrary loan (ILL) via OCLC. 

This interesting piece of information was found on Resource Shelf in their post, “OCLC and EBSCO Announce an Expanded Data Exchange Agreement.”

OCLC will make records from OAIster, a union catalog of some 25 million records representing open access resources, available to all EBSCO Discovery Service users. The organization will also make records from ArchiveGrid, an online service that provides access to detailed archival collection descriptions, available to ArchiveGrid subscribers through the EBSCO Discovery Service.

Making information findable – something we can definitely understand and appreciate.
