  1. ok so this might show a lack of knowledge but why would their holdings appear in worldcat when searched via firstsearch (the image above?)

    I dunno how worldcat.org works really.

  2. I once read an article in American Libraries about the CIA library… *runs a search*

    Newlen, Robert R. “Fifty years of silent service: A peek inside the CIA library.” American Libraries. Apr98, Vol. 29 Issue 4, p62, 3p, 3c

  3. great post! who knew the CIA would be in worldcat? I don’t know much about openworldcat vs fancy first search worldcat either so I poked around a bit. It looks like the CIA is actually listed in the results for that dvd in worldcat.org, but they sort their results by distance and first search by your home state and then alphabetically, so for me (being in CA) they came up as #38 and were on the 4th or 5th page of results. http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/49560789&tab=holdings&loc=91711&start_holding=31#tabs
    Now you’ve got me wondering what other things they’ve got in their library…
