Any reader who wishes can submit reviews to '''Open WorldCat''', the pilot project that is taking OCLC records to the public through '''Google''', '''Yahoo''', and other book related web sites. Librarians should take this opportunity to share their reviews with readers and other librarians everywhere. With contributions by many, librarians and their clients can make '''Open WorldCat''' a high quality alternative to the reader advice on '''Amazon''' and other commercial web sites.
