The In's and Out's of OpenWorldCat & WorldCat.org
Do you continually try to redirect patrons and students from searching for books on the internet using everyday tools such as Google, Amazon.com, abebooks, or another search engine to using your in-house online catalog? Did you know that patrons and students can easily find library books from these and other commonly used tools? Did you also know that you can promote your online catalog and library services outside of your own library website--for free? Open WorldCat and WorldCat.org now make it easier than ever for the general public to use tools and search engines most familiar to them to find library items and services.
MINITEX staff will take you through the In's and Out's of using and promoting your library materials and services through Open WorldCat and WorldCat.org in this 45 minute webinar. We will discuss what Open WorldCat and WorldCat.org are and how they differ. We will also look at the features and tools of each as well as an online demonstration of how they work and how your patrons and students can use them to find library items.
