Transcript

  • 1. WorldCat.org & WorldCat Local What’s the dif?
  • 2. WorldCat.org and Local
  • 3. Introducing WorldCat.org
    • WorldCat.org is the online catalog that any library can join ($) – public/academic/military
    • If you join WorldCat.org, then your holdings will show up when someone searches WorldCat.org or WorldCat Local.
  • 4. WorldCat.org (pg2)
    • Let’s look for Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone in WorldCat.org
    • WorldCat.org guesses your zip-code based on your computer network
    • Lists the nearest libraries first
    • Click into each libraries’ catalog – some work, some don’t (vendor?)
  • 5. WorldCat Local
    • WorldCat.org with a twist (Only local library in NW is UW)
    • Local overlays a library’s catalog system - it’s what the users see when they search the catalog
    • UW 80% increase in Summit Borrowing
  • 6. WorldCat Local (pg 2)
    • Let’s look up Steven H. Ackers using the UW Library catalog
    • Local library’s holdings come first, then Summit – shows availability of all Summit libraries on screen (even Lane – who’s not in WorldCat) – and then all the WorldCat.org libraries
  • 7. Using WorldCat.org and Local
    • Local has the same basic functionality as WorldCat.org
    • Look up books and articles
    • Sign-in from either WordCat.org or from UW – you are signing-in to WordCat.org
  • 8. WorldCat Fun for All
    • Lists – no limit, up to 250 items per list
    • Notes – write your own notes about an item
    • Bookmarks – delicious, Facebook, MySpace, Digg… (32 sites)
    • Reviews – read and right reviews
  • 9. WorldCat.org & Local WorldCat What’s next? WorldCat Delivery (now available in MT)
