OPAC 2.0 ?

I finally had the opportunity to check out the new enhancements to OCLC's WorldCat.

Found via LIS News:
"User-contributed content helps extend the OCLC cooperative to include record-enhancing information from non-cataloging library professionals as well as library users. For example, family members may add notes to records for genealogical materials about their families, or community members may comment on historical photographs or documents from digital collections about their communities that reside in the WorldCat database."

Talk about Library 2.0 and allowing users to contribute to the value of your catalog. :)     Perhaps this is part of the long overdue birth of OPAC 2.0?

PLCMC Staff: Access OCLC WorldCat through NCLive.
