|BookScan Station Uploader||
BookScan Station, the largest installed base for delivery services to email, fax, network and cloud based locations, has developed a built in uploader for scanning books and documents to OCLC’s Article Exchange document delivery site from interlibrary loan request.
The Article Exchange is accessible to lenders from within the WorldCat Resource Sharing service and through an ILLiad Addon. It also provides a single, secure location where lending libraries can place requested documents and the borrowing library can retrieve articles or book chapters the library user requested via interlibrary loan. With the fast and easy connection to the Article Exchange cloud-based platform, library staffs can upload and deliver documents in a fast, friendly and secure environment through the use of the BookScan Station.

|Designers and Books||
Designers and Books.com is devoted to publishing lists of books that esteemed members of the design community identify as personally important, meaningful, and formative—books that have shaped their values, their worldview, and their ideas about design.
The site profiles participating designers—from architects to car designers—to showcase what books have been most influential to each artist’s creative process, and a new list is added to the site each week. Once a reader identifies a particular work on the site, Designers & Books uses the data in WorldCat to provide library availability information and author profiles.

Application allows users to find libraries near them with a particular CD based on information in the Worldcat Search API.

The Link Resolver Module provides Drupal with a local mechanism to add and maintain institutional link resolver data (institution name, resolver url, etc). Data can be added manually but is also "automagically" captured via the WorldCat OpenURL Gateway IP lookup service as users visit your site, imported en masse via CSV (a default list is included in the module) or added via a WorldCat Registry Institutional ID lookup.
