Session Title

Office Hours in Person: Hands-On Help with Your WorldCat Discovery

Presenter Information

Cynthia DuChane, OCLC

Description

You've heard your library needs to transition from FirstSearch to WorldCat Discovery. But you're not sure exactly what steps you need to take, and when the best time would be to transition. Would it help to have someone knowledgeable walk through it with you? Join OCLC Implementation specialists at this hands-on work session to help you get your WorldCat Discovery site ready to go. Participants will bring their own laptop, logins, and logo—and a list of the licensed databases for which you have current subscriptions. OCLC staff will help you configure your site, know the steps for how to request access to the WorldCat knowledge base, set up an automatic feed from WorldShare Collection Manager, and make sure your WorldShare Interlibrary Loan patron settings are displaying correctly in WorldCat Discovery. You'll leave with your new WorldCat Discovery URL in hand, either fully configured or fully knowing what your next steps are to complete your implementation. You'll also get to spend some time thinking as a group to brainstorm creative ideas about how to roll it out to your users. Libraries of all types and sizes with a FirstSearch/WorldCat Discovery subscription are welcome at this hands-on workshop.
