Collaborative collections and OCLC’s Shared Print API
Understanding collection compositions can be challenging. In this webinar you’ll learn how OCLC’s Shared Print API makes it easier for libraries to see which materials will be retained by other institutions and which should be retained locally.
As library collections evolve and institutions re-evaluate the needs of their patrons, many libraries struggle to understand their collection composition and determine the uniqueness of materials that they hold. OCLC’s Shared Print service allows libraries to see which materials will be retained by other institutions and helps libraries to make better informed decisions about the materials that should be retained locally.
Join us on 29 April 2020 to learn how OCLC’s Shared Print API makes this process even easier by integrating with existing library workflows. Attendees will see how the API can help libraries match the retention commitments in their local catalog, find the OCLC numbers for the items that they’re retaining locally, and see how many of their locally retained titles are unique.
