This session is an introduction to FirstSearch, OCLC's online service that provides access to WorldCat and other databases. There is an overview of the basic databases that are offered to ILLINET member libraries, through the Illinois State Library, and instructions about how your library can offer access to additional FirstSearch databases. Participants will learn how to conduct basic and advanced searches and how to customize the interface for patrons and staff.
To participate you will need to have your library's OCLC authorization and password for FirstSearch Administration, an Internet-accessible computer using at least Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 1.5x, a headset with a microphone (for voice interaction), and computer speakers, or headphones (chat interaction available).This workshop is free if you are an IOUG (Illinois OCLC Users’ Group) member. Memberships are annual: $15.00 for individuals and $40.00 for institutions. Join at http:www.ioug.info/membership.html.
