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.

This course is part of a series to help transition member libraries already familiar with WorldCat Resource Sharing and its functionality to OCLC’s new WorldShare ILL service.

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
