New Plans for FirstSearch and WorldCat Discovery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Paul Cappuzzello to learn about OCLC’s new plans for the FirstSearch and WorldCat Discovery services at the ATLA conference.  In response to feedback from librarians about the unique capabilities of FirstSearch, FirstSearch and WorldCat Discovery will continue as separate services. OCLC will offer the full-featured WorldCat searching valued in FirstSearch in a new version of FirstSearch. This search functionality will also be available to WorldCat Discovery subscribers. The current ATLA WorldCat Discovery subscription will enable members to use the new version of FirstSearch when it is released. ATLA members’ collections represented in WorldCat will remain visible on the websites where many people begin their research, no matter which service you choose to use in the future.  Join us to learn more about the next steps for both FirstSearch and WorldCat Discovery. This session will also include an update on recent enhancements to WorldCat Discovery.
