Additional information about accounts
WorldShare Interlibrary Loan users
You have two Service Configuration accounts. The credentials you use to update WorldCat Discovery are different from your WorldShare Interlibrary Loan (WSILL) credentials. You will need to switch browsers or clear browser data in order to log in to the alternate account. Look for text similar to the below in your browser:
Internet Explorer (IE): Tools (or Safety) - Delete browsing history
Mozilla Firefox: History - Clear recent history
Google Chrome: History (or Settings, Advanced settings) - Clear browsing data
The log in screen, https://worldcat.org/config, is divided into two sections/buttons; be sure to click the correct section for WorldCat Discovery or for WSILL. See the WorldShare Interlibrary Loan support site for information about your account.
WorldShare Collection Manager (access to WorldCat knowledge base)
Libraries that decide to use the WorldCat knowledge base will need an account for WorldShare Collection Manager (Metadata tab in the WorldShare interface). After they request access, they will use a library-specific URL to add collection metadata in the knowledge base: https://yourlibrary.share.worldcat.org/wms
