Linking your Catalog for WorldShare ILL

With the migration from WorldCat Resource sharing to the WorldShare platform, the place where the URLs for your catalog reside has changed.  In WorldShare the catalog links need to be updated in the library’s WorldCat Registry. 

 

This is what you need to do.

WorldShare ILL help is just a click away

OCLC’s Customer Support team is your primary contact for WorldShare ILL help.  Call Customer Support for help with questions such as:
