LibKey Discovery Now Integrated with WorldCat Discovery

LibKey Discovery Functionality Now Available for libraries using OCLC WorldCat Discovery

ST. PAUL, MN, December 13, 2019 — Third Iron, LLC, a leading information technology company developing innovative services for libraries, publishers and their users, announced an integration of their service LibKey Discovery and OCLC WorldCat Discovery.  LibKey Discovery delivers one-click linking to PDF articles and links that take the user from article records back to the original journal issue or to the most recent issue of the journal.  Libraries can easily add LibKey Discovery to their OCLC WorldCat Discovery service using the OCLC Service Configuration module.

“WorldCat Discovery is a key resource for many libraries and the main place where students and faculty start their research,” said Kendall Bartsch, CEO at Third Iron.  “The new LibKey Discovery integration with OCLC WorldCat Discovery enhances this leading service with cutting-edge technology.  For researchers using WorldCat Discovery, the one-click access to content will mean less confusion in not having to navigate multiple webpages and less time getting to what they want:  the article.”  Presidenr and Chief Librarian John Seguin continued, “Over the past year, libraries using LibKey Discovery report the direct link to content means more success in getting to content, reducing help desk requests.  Moreover, libraries find LibKey Discovery saves researchers countless hours otherwise spent clicking through menus and navigating websites just to get to an article.  We are excited to bring these same benefits to libraries using OCLC WorldCat.”

LibKey Discovery organically integrates into library services, presenting the enhancements automatically to enrich user experience and productivity in real time.  There is no need to install a browser plug-in and LibKey Discovery works with any web browser.  Installation is simple and Third Iron has published easy to follow steps.  More information can be found at
