Interlibrary lending is the most obvious example of sharing resources. Libraries can see from the online union catalog which institutions hold a particular title, since holding symbols are attached to the bibliographic record. But the third major OCLC subsystem, introduced in 1979, facilitates interlibrary loan further.

These records are delivered back to the libraries on magnetic tapes so that the libraries can enter them electronically into their online catalogs. Some special programs are offered to assist libraries in cataloging their materials. For example, OCLC operates a Major Microform Set Project. Under this program, a library or cooperating group of libraries catalogs a complete set of materials issued on microform, perhaps the Spanish Drama of the Golden Age set.
