Managing patron-initiated ILL requests in WorldCat Discovery

This webinar provided the information needed to configure and use patron-initiated ILL requests from WorldCat Discovery.

This event has passed.

The new WorldCat Discovery service is now available for use by libraries with active FirstSearch subscriptions. WorldCat Discovery brings together the FirstSearch® and WorldCat® Local services to enable users of your member libraries to discover more than 1.5 billion electronic, digital and physical resources in libraries around the world, through a single search of WorldCat and a central index that represents nearly 2,000 e-content collections.

WorldCat Discovery supports patron-initiated ILL requests such as those your users now make through FirstSearch. The service currently provides a generic request form; a customizable version will be released in the coming weeks.   WorldCat Discovery and FirstSearch will operate in parallel through December 2015, when access to the FirstSearch service is scheduled to end.
