OCLC WorldCat Link Manager being folded into WorldCat Local Danny Jones 24 Aug 2010 17:51 UTC

I heard this morning when I came in that another institution in town has been notified by email that the OCLC WorldCat Link Manager will be subsumed into WorldCat Local after December 2011.  Unfortunately, our library didn't receive an email from OCLC so I don't have any actual details.  Perhaps someone who got the email can share this with SERIALST-L so other uninformed customers will know what is happening.  We were an early adapter of 1Cate before it was purchased by OCLC and have a lot of effort invested in our link manager, so we need to know what's going on.

I could be a bit more snarly, but will hold further comment until we have more information.
