OCLC WorldShare ILL Update & Training Information

oclcAs a reminder, all libraries currently using OCLC’s WorldCat Resource Sharing (WCRS) service need to plan a migration to the new WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan service between now and the end of the calendar year, when WCRS will no longer be available. Academic libraries that belong to Washington Group Services (sos.wa.gov/q/waywho) are encouraged to migrate as a group in July and August.

Members of Washington OCLC Group Services have the unique opportunity participate in a managed migration from WCRS to the new service. It’s important to take advantage of this opportunity for training in the new service before access to WCRS ends in December. If your library has not already registered for WorldShare ILL, please register at sos.wa.gov/q/WA-ILL-Form.

Training scheduled specifically for Washington libraries will be held at 11 a.m. Pacific Time as follows:

Self-paced training options are also available. Visit sos.wa.gov/q/WayfinderNews for more links and information, including archived webinars and self-paced training options.

WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan now has new, recently released features including 2-per-page printing of book straps and requests. To learn more, consider viewing a webinar recording that provides an overview of new and upcoming WorldShare ILL enhancements. The program also included a chat with OCLC’s WorldShare ILL team about effective use of the service, best practices, and plans for its ongoing enhancement and expansion. The recording is available at sos.wa.gov/q/ILL-Enhance.
