UC Libraries' Discovery Platform
Melvyl is the discovery platform for the UC Libraries. Melvyl, powered by OCLC WorldCat Local, offers seamless connection to the larger research world – the ability to search 800 million+ items from research institutions throughout the world. OCLC makes small improvements to WorldCat Local on a monthly basis. You can learn about the changes in the Melvyl monthly release notes and we communicate relevant changes via CDLInfo News.
WorldCat Local and FirstSearch will be replaced by WorldCat Discovery. We are tentatively aiming to make the switch in late summer/early fall 2015. Read more about the WorldCat Discovery beta. CDL is working closely with OCLC to monitor progress of the beta. We are sharing progress in CDLInfo News.
