This may be old news to many readers, but Yahoo! released a browser toolbar that can execute a WorldCat search. Try the Yahoo! toolbar, downloadable at http://www.oclc.org/toolbar/default.htm, and see how it can help you “find it at a library.” I have heard many librarians ridicule the Yahoo! toolbar because it does not accurately bring web users to their local library catalogs. They do make a valid point, but I feel that any technology attempting to guide potential library users to library resources is encouraging.
