Course Overview

This module provides instruction on how to personalize the WorldCat® Discovery interface and enhance the interface for your library patrons and staff. This builds upon information that is presented in Configuration Part 1: Content and staff features.

Upon completion of this session, learners will be able to personalize and display links to information specific to the library’s site, such as a chat widget and a sign in screen for remote users.  How to set up access to e-resources as identified in the WorldCat knowledge base and access to a Request Item button for interlibrary loan requests will also be reviewed. Finally, a look at the HTML code for adding a search box for default searching and creating a URL to access specific databases on the advanced search screen will be presented. 

Audience

This course is for institutions that want to add patron-specific features to their WorldCat Discovery service. Other staffs that administer online resources may find this content useful for configuring WorldCat Discovery for their institution.
