Custom Holdings on WorldCat Resource Sharing

Course Overview

Custom Holdings allows OCLC’s WorldCat Resource Sharing (WCRS) system to quickly and automatically identify potential lenders and route requests based on your library’s preferred lenders. Implementation of the custom holdings function also significantly reduces the time you spend processing borrowing requests.


This course is intended for learners who have a basic familiarity with WorldCat Resource Sharing (WCRS) but who desire to automate their borrowing workflow, thus making it more efficient and less staff intensive. It is also intended for libraries that have already implemented custom holdings but have a need to maintain it by training new resource sharing staff in how to use it.

Closed captioning is available in the US upon request with 5 business day’s notice.
