If you're looking for a quick, hourlong introduction to OCLC Web Services, reserve the 2:00-3:00 p.m. Central Time slot TODAY--April 1, 2010. You'll hear Karen show the various services in action like the WorldCat Search API, the WorldCat Basic API, WorldCat Registry APIs, xISBN, xISSN, WorldCat Identities and more. The OCLC Web Services Webinar
is part of WiLS's long-standing "Library Open Solutions
" series, and it's open to anyone who would like to attend. (WiLS and MINITEX members get an even better rate.)
There is a fee to attend--but it covers the registration and recordings
for all 6 of the sessions, and one seat can be shared for a whole library. So in this way, it brings the cost down to a reasonable amount per person.
