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.
Click the links below to find dates for each class, or get a quick look at upcoming dates on the list to the right.
As you're making the transition to the new system, you may also want to take advantage of some of the automation tools available to increase the efficiency of your borrowing and lending activities, although these courses are not required to making the transition.
After you complete the training, you might find the tutorials below helpful to refresh your memory on specific topics from the training:

This course is designed to acquaint new member libraries and/or new ILL staff to OCLC’s Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system, WorldShare ILL

At the end of this session, attendees will know how to set up, maintain, and use deflection in WorldShare ILL (WSILL). This will give them the benefit of partially-automating their lending workflow, which give them the further benefits of eliminating the processing of requests they would decline to fill.
