OCLC in Yahoo and Google: A proposal
Reading Rita Vine's discussion
of the different treatment of OCLC records in Yahoo and Google pointed out by Randy Reichardt on STLQ
makes me think. Why can't all of us librarian bloggers link to the OCLC record instead of the Amazon record for the books we discuss? Wouldn't it be more useful to point people to finding the book in their local public libraries? I already did this on a hobby forum. My proposal: let's all try to link to the OCLC "Find in a Library" record for a while and see if that changes anything. Encourage OCLC... help library circulation....
Recently I've been talking about Fabric of the Cosmos
