Step 3 - Learn the new system

We recognize that different people learn in different ways and have different scheduling needs.  We've created resources that can help you learn the system in the style that suits you best.

1. I want to get started right away.  I like to dig into a new system and learn as I go.

2. I want an instructor to guide me, but I dont have the flexibility to attend the scheduled training,

3. I want an instructor to guide me in the new system, and be able to ask questions and do hands-on exercises in a real-time training session.

4. I am from a library that participates in an ILL group. I either submit my requests to an ILL borrowing management center or I am an ILL management center.  I need to learn how to use WorldShare ILL as an ILL borrowing management center or group library.
