Open WorldCat

In my time at the reference desk today I added TOC and summary notes to some of our publications in Open WorldCat. See for example:I'm not sure if these will be available to searchers on Yahoo, I added them into Google. I'm not even sure if they are searched when doing an Open WorldCat search. I'll have to experiment later. Maybe sometime they will migrate to the bib records.

31 May 2006. It seems that the addition of a TOC or a summary in Google does appear in Yahoo. neither appear to search that text, but maybe it has yet to be spidered and indexed.
