EasyBib.com and OCLC collaborate to build library-branded citation service

From a press release by OCLC on January 25, 2011:

OCLC and ImagineEasy Solutions, LLC are collaborating to create a customizable library version of ImagineEasy Solutions’ popular EasyBib.com service, the most popular online citation site on the Web. The EasyBib Library Edition service will be rolled out in a beta testing phase with select OCLC member libraries this month.

EasyBib is an automatic bibliography composer, used by more than 23 million unique visitors in the past year. More than 500,000 new citations are added each day during peak periods of use, such as at the end of university terms. Students simply search or enter bibliographic data of a particular source and EasyBib formats the citation, alphabetizes the works cited list and exports it to word-processing software. Students can also use EasyBib’s notebook feature to dynamically organize their research information associated with their citations.

EasyBib, a WorldCat.org partner site, already generates a robust traffic stream to libraries through WorldCat.org, using the WorldCat Search API to power book search citations.
