OCLC Web Information Sessions

The OCLC web information sessions will include a live, FREE presentation
that you'll access via the web, with audio available via a conference call.
You'll be able to submit questions you have at any time during the
presentation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------
(1) Learn how to give your patrons improved access to your entire
collection.

Join us to learn more about the OCLC Custom Cataloging services and the OCLC
MARC Record Service (OCLC MARS).  OCLC Custom Cataloging services -OCLC
TechPro and OCLC RetroCon- offer a complete range of cataloging and
conversion services for all types of collections. We provide contract
cataloging and physical processing for materials in all bibliographic
formats and about 40 languages, for both long- and short-term solutions.

OCLC Custom Cataloging services let you add an experienced team of
catalogers to your staff at a price you can afford.  You can improve your
users' search results by providing a complete and upgraded online catalog,
with all of your records in full MARC format.  Our services free your staff
for higher priorities within your library, while giving your users access to
your entire collection -even those you haven't yet found time to catalog.

To complement these services, we offer the OCLC MARC Record Service (MARS),
providing authority control, bibliographic record upgrading, smart barcode
number generation, ongoing authority updating and notification services, and
record enrichment with tables of contents.   And, if you're currently
considering a change to a new local system, the time is right for you to
consider authority control.

(2) Learn how you can digitize your historic newspapers
Join us to learn how your library can provide fully searchable web access to
your valuable historic newspaper collections through OCLC Digital &
Preservation Resources.  Using Olive Software, designed for newspaper
digitization, we can efficiently convert newspapers in print or microform to
digital format and deliver an online file for your library's web site or for
OCLC's hosted site.  As a result, your library users will have easily
accessible historic content, presented in context, with the newspaper's
original layout, graphics and reading experience.

(3) Managing Your Digital Library
Join us to learn more about the new OCLC Digital Preservation Cooperative
and an innovative new OCLC service --the CONTENTdm software suite.

The Digital & Preservation Cooperative provides a central knowledge base for
digital activities throughout the information industry. It acts as a
clearinghouse for information on grant and other funding resources and on
digitization collaborative projects. Cooperative participants come together
to share knowledge and to increase the value of digital collections by
combining them with other collections. The Cooperative provides the latest
in best practices, standards and technology white papers to help you learn
more about digitization and preservation trends.

CONTENTdm enables your library to create, access and preserve special
collections --on your library's computer or hosted on an OCLC server.
CONTENTdm lets you start with a small number of images, demonstrate success
to your staff, patrons, and funding sources and let your software grow with
your collection.  With CONTENTdm, you can turn your special collections into
fully searchable online resources accessible from any web browser.  And, as
part of the Co-op, your library will receive a free starter kit to collect
and store 500 images on the OCLC CONTENTdm hosted service.  We'll review the
software with you and show you how quickly you can begin using this cost-
effective digital library resource.

(4) Make Digital Reference a Reality for your Library

Join us to learn about the new QuestionPoint collaborative reference service
that links a global network of reference librarians who interact with
library users and share questions and answers.  With QuestionPoint, your
library will gain a powerful, easy-to-use resource to provide digital
reference services.  Your library users will gain a resource that enables
them to submit questions at any time through your library's web site.
QuestionPoint extends reference support directly to your users through
web-based forms and online chat capabilities, and it enables you to answer
your users questions or route them to libraries within your group prior to
escalating unanswered questions to the global network. In addition, learn
about the QuestionPoint features that are coming soon as a result of a
partnership with Convey Technologies.

(5)  See all the new enhancements to OCLC ILLiad and learn how you can
improve your library's ILL efficiency with OCLC ILLiad.

Imagine having a new interlibrary loan management tool that allows your
users to get the materials they need more quickly, while you eliminate all
of those paper files that your library currently maintains. With OCLC
ILLiad, your staff saves time by managing all your library's borrowing,
lending, and document delivery through a single, Microsoft Windows-based
staff interface.  It also saves you time and money through online, automated
procedures, improving the efficiency of your ILL department while giving
your staff more powerful tools to use.  And, now that OCLC ILLiad is ISO-ILL
compliant, you can transmit and receive ILL requests from other ISO-ILL
compliant services.

And now Version 6.0 of OCLC ILLiad will provide libraries with even more
time saving features for both ILL staff and library end users.  Version 6.0
will offer:

OpenURL - Utilization of the latest OpenURL technology will allow your
patrons to link directly from citations in WorldCat and other OCLC
FirstSearch databases to OCLC ILLiad.  Citation data will be automatically
transferred to the patron's ILL request form, giving you authoritative
citation information that includes ISSNs and ISBNs.

End of reliance on OCLC Passport - As OCLC moves away from support of OCLC
Passport, ILLiad will provide libraries with an ILL Management system that
uses direct machine-to-machine links to the OCLC ILL service for a seamless
batch updating of ILL requests.

Even more Statistics - OCLC ILLiad now supports links to the OCLC ILL
Management Statistics. Now you can generate statistics base on LC, Dewey or
NLM call numbers to provide your Collection Analysis staff with access to
statistics that provide most frequently requested book and journal titles
that include their classification scheme.
