Second Notice!

WorldCat Resource Sharing Basics - Online

This three-day online workshop is designed for users who borrow or lend
through the OCLC Interlibrary Loan service.

Day 1: Borrowing
Learn to create borrowing requests for returnable items such as books
and DVDs and for non-returnable items (i.e. copies). This part of the
session will demonstrate the use of custom holdings and local data
records to create efficiencies in the interlibrary loan workflow. We
will also complete all actions required to bring a request through the
entire interlibrary loan cycle.

Day 2: WorldCat Resource Sharing Lending
Manage incoming requests and gain familiarity with the Request Manager
categories. In this half of the workshop, you will learn to use batch
processing in order to update and print requests in your lending cycle
and administer your work more effectively.

Day 3: WorldCat Resource Sharing Administrative Functions
Access the FirstSearch administrative module to create data records that
eliminate repetitive data entry. Participants will devise constant data
and saved notes, review the use and implementation of IFM (ILL Fee
Management) as well as create custom holdings groups, custom holdings
paths and direct request profile to improve service in all aspects of
resource sharing. Time will also be spent updating and maintaining
records in the ILL Policies Directory.

NOTE: This course is designed for individual participation. Regardless
of whether you attend as an individual or as a group, the fee for this
online workshop will be charged for each person who views the session.
All participants must register separately.

Who Should Attend
Library staff who want to acquire the basic skills needed to do OCLC ILL
using WorldCat Resource Sharing.
