Open WorldCat and FRBR

OCLC has applied a FRBR tool to the results of Open WorldCat searchs.
The display of WorldCat records in the Open WorldCat program has been simplified to help people locate specific versions of a title more quickly. Web users who reach the "Find in a Library" interface from partner search engines now see consolidated results for different formats of a source work.

OCLC has fully applied the FRBR conceptual model to the 3-million-record set currently exposed through Yahoo! Search and Google, providing a deeper view of WorldCat and greatly flattened search results.
