Many of you have read or heard about the OCLC migration from WorldCat Resource Sharing to WorldShare Interlibrary Loan. Libraries in the US began switching to the new WorldShare platform in March. The Illinois State Library, RAILS, and IHLS have been in communication with OCLC about the best migration timeline for Libraries in Illinois. It is anticipated that training sessions for Illinois libraries on borrowing and lending in WorldShare will begin in late May, 2013. Libraries in the northern part of the state will begin training first, while the majority of libraries in IHLS will start training in late August.
