OCLC Services

Introducing the OCLC Services account

OCLC is committed to providing access to all the OCLC services you are authorized to use from a single account. We have begun initiating a "single sign-in" for some OCLC services.

As other OCLC services transition into single sign-in, you may return to this page to enable access.

I need to create an OCLC Services account

NOTE: You will need your 9-digit OCLC authorization number (100-xxx-xxx) and password to create a new account.

To create an account for WorldCat Search, you will need your 9-digit FirstSearch authorization number and administrative password.

If you do not know your authorization number and password, please contact OCLC Order Services at orders@oclc.org or 1-800-848-5878.
