OCLC Shared Print Management Program to help libraries collaborate and manage collections using WorldCat
The new OCLC Shared Print Management Program is designed to help libraries register shared print collections holdings in WorldCat so that they can collaborate closely to more efficiently manage and share these collections.
A growing number of regional efforts are under way to consolidate and preserve print collections among multiple libraries in response to the widespread availability of digital resources and increasing pressure for space in campus library buildings.
OCLC has signed new agreements with leading publishers around the world to add more e-book metadata to WorldCat, the most comprehensive online database of resources available through libraries worldwide.
This new WorldCat metadata will be integrated into library management workflows using OCLC’s cataloging services and discoverable by users through a variety of library discovery services, including WorldCat Local and WorldCat.org.
Amigos Library Services will present a one-day online conference “HTML5 and CSS3: Ready for Prime Time?” on Friday, February 8. The conference will cover a variety of topics, such as making your website more accessible, transitioning to the future-friendly web, and using HTLM5 and CSS3 with Modernizr.
