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.
