Getting Ready For OCLC’s New Interlibrary Loan Service
The WorldCat Resource Sharing interlibrary loan service libraries receive through the Illinois statewide OCLC contract will be replaced this year by a new service, OCLC WorldShare™ Interlibrary Loan. WorldShare™ Interlibrary Loan will deliver new and expanded functionality that supports evolving workflow changes, such as the option to purchase instead of borrow needed materials.
The service’s interoperation with other applications, such as the display of lender costs from the OCLC Policies Directory and display of item availability from a library’s ILS, will be supported by the new WorldShare Platform.
