Introduction to OCLC's Future Delivery Services

Tuesday, May 3, 11:00am EDT.

We are now in the initial phase of development for a future service that will give WorldCat Resource Sharing users a new interface that simplifies library and end-user requesting workflows through timesaving resource sharing tools. The new service, to be available from the interface that supports OCLC’s new Web-scale Management Services, will benefit interlibrary loan staff and library users in a number of ways.

  • Interlibrary loan staff will manage user requests through a new easy-to-navigate interface that incorporates “buy-it” options into more traditional interlibrary loan functions. Staff will also benefit from workflow automation that will increase staff efficiency and save time.
  • Library users will use familiar services for discovery and to place requests.
Although full release of the new service will not occur until mid-2012, we want to let you know now of our plans for enhancing the resource sharing service you rely on to meet the needs of your users.
