WorldCat is changing the way you search for library resources. I entered a simple search and it returned results from a variety of libraries in the area; University of Utah, Logan City, Hill AFB, Uinta County, etc. I can then go in and make a reservation, post comments, buy the book from Amazon, or several other things. According to LITA, after only a quarter of implementing WorldCat, the University of Washington library has seen a drastic increase in their borrowing. Prior to World Cat, there was an increase in borrowing of 6% a year. With the implementation of WCL, Ill Borrowing at UW has jumped to 39.5%.
