OCLC and member libraries complete beta testing

“OCLC has completed beta testing of the new OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan service and is moving forward with an 18-month phased migration to the new service. WorldShare Interlibrary Loan is scheduled to replace WorldCat Resource Sharing in 2013 as part of libraries’ existing subscriptions. The new service will centralize workflows now managed in multiple systems, and provide new functionality that speeds fulfillment of interlibrary loan requests, saving time for library staff and library users.”

Cornell and Columbia libraries extend collaboration

Cornell Chronicle – “In an era of shrinking budgets, how can academic libraries provide the best possible information for their communities? Together. A new borrowing program between Cornell University Library and Columbia University Libraries allows users at both schools to take out materials from both libraries — meaning that a Cornell student or faculty member in New York City can register for a library card at Columbia and check out books, and vice versa for Columbia students and faculty at Cornell’s Ithaca campus.
