Yahoo Provides Access To Library Records

Via the Yahoo Search Blog, news that a special version
of the Yahoo Toolbar now allows you to search across two million library holdings through a cooperative project with OCLC, the Online
Computer Library Center.

Searching library records is a favorite topic of Gary’s, and he’s covered this in past posts such More Full Text
and The Virtual Reference. You can expect him to revisit this new Yahoo initiative when he’s back
from the Internet Librarian conference, where the partnership was also unveiled.

Postscript: Gary’s sent me a few links
