    OCLC FirstSearch

    The OCLC FirstSearch service connects a world of libraries to a universe of information. FirstSearch gives library users instant online access to over 80 databases, including these valuable OCLC databases: OCLC WorldCat, OCLC FirstSearch Electronic Collections Online, OCLC NetFirst, OCLC ArticleFirst, OCLC PAIS International, OCLC ContentsFirst, OCLC PapersFirst, OCLC ProceedingsFirst, and OCLC Union Lists of Periodicals. Best of all, library holdings are displayed up front, so users can easily identify items in their own library's collection.
