Simplifying circulation and course reserves:
A detailed demonstration in WorldShare Circulation

During this one-hour detailed demonstration of WorldShare Management Services, you will learn how you can streamline all of your circulation tasks through a single, Web-based interface. You’ll also learn how your library operations can be performed on any tablet, laptop, smartphone or device with a Web browser. The portability of these devices means you can more easily complete tasks, such as inventory, because you carry out the tasks in your library’s stacks.

Circulation: You will see how to easily use the account management functions, including check-in, check-out and renewals, as well as integrated hold and fine management. We will demonstrate how the services track availability and holds in real time, enabling you to generate a pull list on demand.

Course Reserves: You will see how easy it is for anyone, including student workers, to create and duplicate a list, and store everything electronically.

Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]
