  3. 3. Overview What happened in February Policies Directory update WorldCat Resource Sharing • WorldCat Direct • Integrated Fulfilment The ILLiad community WorldCat Navigator
  4. 4. What happened in February - The Perfect Storm
  5. 5. The WCRS Perfect Storm A new authentication process was installed on February 1 which resulted in unanticipated issues including: • Requests mistakenly sent to lenders who may not hold an item • Requests for an institution submitted with another institution listed as the borrower • Borrowers received materials that they did not request Note - These were isolated and limited requests – the vast majority processed as usual.
  6. 6. Corrective action plan Processes being put in place to ensure this doesn’t happen again Project now split over 3 different time periods to ensure service continuity: May 09 Institutional data feed update Aug 09 Policies UI install Sept 09 Authentication upgrade (December fallback) All projects can be turned off quickly and easily in case any issues found All projects timed so as not to affect peak Please note that we’ll give notice in the week before the August and September installs are confirmed
  7. 7. The New Policies Directory Update Jennifer Corsi jennifer_corsi@oclc.org
  8. 8. OCLC Policies Directory new interface • New interface – design based on usability tests with current libraries and review at ALA Midwinter • New platform and underlying architecture • Deeper integration with WorldCat Registry
  9. 9. What is going away? Concept of a “unit” Reciprocal Lender field Not going away, but changing where the data is held: FEIN number, Lending URL, Library homepage (URL), Library catalog (URL), Library type. These pieces of information will be held in the WorldCat Registry and any changes to them will need to be made through the WC Registry interface The Institution name and location (city, state, country) will also be coming from the Registry
  10. 10. WorldCat Registry Data to be used in Policies Directory Institution name Institution type City, State, Country Home page Online Catalog Recently added to registry: FEIN Lending URL
  11. 11. New Policies screen – copies, loans and deflections all available in one display
  12. 12. Time table for new Policies Directory • We are tentatively looking at the August timeframe • WebEx session will be offered in the month prior to introduction of the new interface • Tutorial will be available
  13. 13. Policy directory • Policy directory web service in development for use by: • ILLiad, VDX and Navigator • Putting in place processes • for retrospectively updating international policy data following data loads • for including policy data with new data loads
  14. 14. WorldCat Resource Sharing Christa Starck, Product Manager starckc@oclc.org
  15. 15. WorldCat Direct WorldCat Direct provides home delivery of physical materials to users. OCLC is moving to create a sustainable model of library home delivery through its pilot programs: • Montana Pilot • Phase 2 Pilot
  16. 16. WorldCat Direct Phase 2 Pilot: Compare with Montana… Same purpose: Home delivery for ILL Requests Differences: • Resources provided by book supplier instead of lending library • Patron may purchase book • Patron may keep book longer • Borrowing library pays for each delivery
  17. 17. Progress So Far WorldCat Direct Pilot 11 Participants Columbus Metropolitan Library, Ohio – May 2008 – March 2009 High Plains Library District, Colorado – May 2008 – November 2008 Westerville Public Library, Ohio – June 2008 – November 2008 Lincoln Trail Libraries District, Illinois: - September 2008 – Spring 2009 • Des Plaines Public Library • Champaign Public Library • Edwardsville Public Library • University of Illinois @ Chicago • University of Illinois @ Springfield • Lewis & Clark Library System • Lincoln Library • Hoopeston Public Library

  20. 20. “Non-Pilot” Success (Traditional ILL) WorldCat Direct Pilot Libraries can request items from Better World Books using WorldCat Resource Sharing (OCLC Symbol: QUICK) • 30 day loans, plus some lead time for mailing • Postage-paid return envelope • Library or User may purchase book • (no home delivery) Better World Books must have interesting inventory… • >3,700 requests from non-pilot libraries through WorldCat Resource Sharing since May 2008
  21. 21. Next Steps WorldCat Direct Pilot Continue the Pilot Modify WorldCat Resource Sharing to support direct delivery for all OCLC libraries Promote the service to all libraries using WorldCat Resource Sharing or ILLiad – by end of 2009
  22. 22. Integrated Fulfilment • Resource sharing and e-journal management • A web scale solution to IDS Project’s ALIAS • Integrated Knowledge Base with WorldCat • License management – ILL Y/N & ILL instructions • WCRS or ILLiad for request management • Part of WCRS subscription – not an additional service
