New Blog Post: WorldCat.org for Genealogists

From the Blog Post:

Editor's note [Alice Sneary]: this is a special guest post in a new occasional series to highlight how WorldCat.org helps specialized searchers find what they're looking for. Taneya Koonce is both a librarian and a genealogy researcher, making her an especially interesting guest blogger. If YOU'RE interested in submitting a guest post about specific searchers for the WorldCat blog, please leave a comment and we will follow up with you.

Taneya writes:

As an information professional who pursues genealogy as a hobby, I am always interested in utilizing and sharing resources more likely to be known to professionals in my field. During the past few weeks, I've been delighted by one of the popular genealogy-blogging themes, 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy where each of the prompts so far this year have been designed to encourage genealogists to further explore and use their library resources; in fact, the series creator is a librarian herself . Week 5 of the series has particular emphasis here because the goal was to encourage hundreds of genea-bloggers to explore WorldCat.org and I'm a huge personal fan of WorldCat.
