CONFIRMED: WorldShare Collection Manager Release

Release documentation is available

This event has passed.

A new release of WorldShare® Collection Manager is scheduled to be installed on 10 September 2021. 

This release provides libraries with new Collection Manager and knowledge base functionality, including:

  • Exciting updates to the Collection Manager interface, including cleaner and more intuitive menus, preview screens, and an expanded Activity History
  • Greater clarity regarding which knowledge base changes can be customized for your library and what changes will be made globally for all libraries
  • The ability to view collection changes more easily in Activity History
  • Faster access to cooperative knowledge base changes.

Many of the enhancements apply to WorldCat knowledge base collections as well as titles.  No changes were made to data sync collections or query collections

These enhancements are in large part the direct result of the community's feedback.
