New WorldCat Site

OCLC has just announced the launch of a new WorldCat site. The new site will be available in August. From OCLC:
To be released August 2006 in beta form, WorldCat.org continues OCLC's efforts—begun with the Open WorldCat program—to make library resources more visible to Web users, and to increase awareness of libraries as a primary source of reliable information and helpful personal assistance. Where Open WorldCat inserts "Find in a Library" results within regular search engine results, WorldCat.org provides a permanent destination page and search box that lets a broader range of people discover the riches of library-held materials cataloged in the WorldCat databases.
