WorldCat Local: Global Network, Local Results


Published on

Sirsi Midwest Users' Group (SMUG) Annual Conference, July 27, 2007

OCLC is piloting its new WorldCat Local service that will allow your library to customize as a solution for local discovery and delivery services. WorldCat Local interoperates with locally maintained services like circulation, resource sharing and resolution to full text to present a locally branded interface to your patrons. Attend this session to learn how this new service works and to see the beta being run at the University of Washington Libraries.
