If you are in interested in accessing our WorldCat catalog for institutional cataloging purposes WorldCat has released this statement on the issue: "OCLC staff occasionally hears from librarians who want to use Z39.50 access to the WorldCat database on the OCLC FirstSearch service for cataloging purposes. While use of Z39.50 for cataloging is available, only a cataloging authorization number can be used to catalog with Z39.50 access within the services agreements. OCLC does provide an extensive range of cataloging and metadata services for libraries, including Web and Z39.50 interfaces for cataloging.
 
If you are simply trying to browse our catalog, you should be able to do so directly through the fuller library website. Without Fuller ID credentials you will not be able to remotely access our databases and subscriptions but you can still see basic bibliographic records (but not MARC records). You could also try Fuller Library's page on the public WorldCat site.
