Migration timeline

Beta testing was conducted with a group of volunteer libraries. The group was comprised of academic, public and special libraries that use WorldCat Resource Sharing services along with WorldCat Local, WorldCat Local "quick start" or Webscale Management Services.

A phased rollout of the service began in mid-2012, with two managed migration group in July and November 2012. Access to the WorldCat Resource Sharing service is scheduled to end May 19, 2014. 

OCLC is consulting with groups that share a resource sharing subscription to plan their migrations. Because these groups are all managed differently, we are working together to determine the best approach and timing for their migration to the new service.

WorldShare Interlibrary Loan is now available for all WorldCat Resource Sharing subscribers worldwide.  

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
