Instructor-led Learning

If you prefer to attend online, instructor-led training we have good news for you. After just two classes, you'll be up and running on the new WorldShare ILL system.

Our online instructor-led courses include live demonstrations and hands-on simulations to help you understand the system before you start borrowing and lending in your live system. 

We recommend that you take the borrowing class first, as the lending class builds on skill you learn in the borrowing class.
