Abstract: In June of 2012, oCLC announced the next stage of its Linked Data strategy when it revealed that Schema.org markup had been added to WorldCat.org pages under an open Data Commons license (oDC-BY). this technique provided a platform to present the metadata and holdings for millions of bibliographic items held by tens of thousands of libraries to the large commercial search engines for use in their search indexes and applications.
