WorldCat Local is a webscale discovery solution that delivers single-search-box access to more than 982 million items from your library and the world's library collections. CONTENTdm helps you to make your digital collections available on the Web, more quickly and easily. No matter the format—local history archives, newspapers, books, maps, slide libraries or audio/video—CONTENTdm can handle the storage, management and delivery of your collections to users across the Web. VDX is a document delivery and interlending management system that fully automates the requesting and supply of books and journal articles. It meets the needs of consortia that require greater local control of resource sharing among their members by offering tight integration with disparate local library systems. VDX is used by the public library networks in Victoria and Western Australia as well as Libraries Australia Document Delivery (LADD).
