Adjusting the WorldShare ILL screen display

Tip of the Week July 10, 2014

Some WorldShare ILL users have asked how they can adjust their view of WorldShare ILL screens to support their personal use of the service. This tip is a reminder of two easy ways you can adjust the appearance of WorldShare ILL while you work.

Tip 1:  Increase or decrease the font size on your screen

To increase the font size of text on your WorldShare ILL screen, just press CONTROL and the plus (+) sign. To decrease the font size, press CONTROL and the minus (-) sign. On a MAC, the commands to increase or decrease font size are <+> and <->.

Tip 2: Hide the sidebar

You can quickly hide the navigational sidebar on the WorldShare ILL screen display, to better focus on the area where you perform your primary ILL activities.

Just click the arrow in the upper left corner of your screen to hide the sidebar:

OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan homepage

The resulting display does not include the sidebar.  This enables you to focus on the ILL procedures that require your attention:

WorldShare Interlibrary Loan homepage with no left Navigation pane.

To restore the sidebar, just click on the arrow in the upper left corner of the screen again.

For additional assistance, consult WorldShare ILL training and documentation resources or contact OCLC Support in your region.
