My question about the new OCLC worldcat.org - why does the display default to showing "Featured libraries" that hold a copy?
In my case, the closest Featured Library is SUNY, which is 426 km away. I have to click on "All libraries" to see that *my own university library* that is 0 km away (because I am sitting in it) holds a copy.
OCLC's Aug. 9 email about the new WorldCat:
"WorldCat.org is getting a complete redesign to improve your experience. That’s right, the site you love is getting even better.
New features include:
* Location based results
* Mobile-friendly interface
* Open access materials prominently displayed
* Better accessibility
* More access to e-content from your local library
* The option to more easily find and get resources from your favorite libraries"
@dbs I am not entirely sure how some libraries are getting into featured but All libraries is a non-functional Cluster. It’s. It’s all bad.
