Getting to know

Part of learning any new service involves knowing the ins and outs of a new interface.  Some familiar features have new labels or are positioned in a new place on the screen, and navigation among different parts of the service may take some practice.  Some general guidelines for use of the new WorldShare Interlibrary Loan interface are provided here.
