Are you curious about what the future looks like for Melvyl, resource sharing (ILL), and FirstSearch WorldCat?  

Join us for a UC- only OCLC webinar, “Transforming Discovery and Resource Sharing with OCLC: FirstSearch, WorldCat Resource Sharing and More.” The webinar will provide an opportunity for a focused conversation with two senior managers at OCLC.

Mindy Pozenel, Director, OCLC WorldCat Discovery Services, and Katie Birch, Portfolio Director, OCLC Delivery Services, will tell us about the new services from OCLC that provide opportunities to create and share at Webscale.

Built on the OCLC WorldShare Platform, OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan will replace WorldCat Resource Sharing and help library staff and users quickly and easily obtain the resources they need from libraries worldwide. Plus, new discovery features in WorldCat.org and WorldCat Local give staff the expert features they require. 

The event is scheduled for Thursday, September 20 at 11:00 – 12:00 PDT.
