The University of New Brunswick in Fredericton and Saint John, Canada, used the WorldCat knowledge base API to create customized A-Z lists for their users. They built their own A-Z lists because it gives them freedom and flexibility to include and interact with data and in ways, (i.e. no left-anchored default search) that are both included and not included in the various OCLC-designed interfaces. "It's a big plus for us," remarked one of UNB's Web Programmer Analysts.
Their implementation is still in development, as they're still working on collection title lists. But things are progressing very well.
