Worldcat/Google Bookmarklet

This is slick, the Worldcat/Google Bookmarklet. Thanks to all involved. It may have some use to catalogers, but even more to reference staff, I can see when a patron is looking for a book not in the collection this would be a great way to find it elsewhere.

Simply drag the bookmarklet to you Favorites folder and then when viewing a page with an ISBN select that favorite. It displays the WorldCat record in Google, with an option to find locations nearby. Enter your Zip Code. Slick.
