OCLC Services Illinois State Library

OCLC, headquartered in Dublin, OH, is an international, nonprofit, membership, library service organization dedicated to furthering access to the world’s information. Over 72,000 libraries from over 100 countries have used OCLC services for cataloging, reference, resource sharing, eContent, preservation, library management and Web services. OCLC and its worldwide member libraries cooperatively produce and maintain the world’s largest and richest database of bibliographic information, WorldCat.

In 1977, the Illinois State Library received a Library Services and Construction Act grant to incorporate OCLC into its organizational structure, resulting in the establishment of ILLINET/OCLC Services. OCLC has continued to be a leader in assisting libraries to meet the information needs of Illinois citizens. Funding and administration of the program is included as part of the annual budget of the State Library, in accordance with the State Library Act, 15 ILCS 320 7(l), effective January 1, 2003.
