For more, see the OATD FAQ.
3/21/13 - WorldCat Identities
The Library has put a link to WorldCat Identities in the banner of our catalog, next to links for WorldCat and the Joseph Campbell Library Catalog. "WorldCat Identities has a summary page for every name in WorldCat (currently some 30 million names) including named persons, organizations and fictious characters. WorldCat Identities provides statistical data about how widely held a work is. A typical WorldCat Identities page will include a list of most widely held-by-libraries works by and about the identity, a list of variant forms of name the identity has been known by, a FAST tag cloud of places, topics, etc. closely related to works by and about the person, links to co-authors, and more" (from http://www.oclc.org/research/activities/identities.html).
We encourage you to use WorldCat Identities when conducting research about organizations or persons, including authors or fictious characters. The resulting information can show you what their most influential works are (because they will be owned by the most libraries) and what topics and places they are most associated with. For an example, see the WorldCat Identities entry for James Hillman.
Special thanks to Mark Kelly, Lead Reference & Instruction Librarian, for discovering and recommending WorldCat Identities.
