WorldCat Local: Global Network, Local Results


Published on

Presented by Christa Burns
At NEBASE Annual Meeting - East (August 9, 2007, Lincoln, NE) and as a NEBASE Hour (September 5, 2007, online)
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.
