OCLC is pleased to offer OCLC WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan training in a variety of formats designed to meet your needs as you move to the new service. This includes learning via tutorials, recorded training sessions and Web-based, instructor-led sessions. All of our training resources for WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan are available at no charge to our members with a resource sharing subscription.


Seats are still available in upcoming Web-based, instructor-led sessions. The schedule of courses and more information can be found here:

We also recognize that people learn in different ways and have personal scheduling needs, so we’ve created the following learning paths that can help you learn the system in the style that suits you best: 

1. I want to get started right away. I like to dig into a new system and learn as I go.

2. I want an instructor to guide me, but I don’t have the flexibility to attend the scheduled training.

3. I want an instructor to guide me in the new system, and be able to ask questions and do hands-on exercises in a real-time training session.
