New Community Center offers a place online for library staff to share ideas about OCLC services, best practices
- 24 Jul 2015

The new OCLC Community Center offers a place for library staff to connect online, share best practices, stay up to date on new product releases and contribute ideas to improve OCLC services.

Introduced to user groups at the 2015 ALA Annual Conference in June, the Community Center is now available to users of WorldCat Discovery Services, WorldShare Management Services (WMS), WorldShare Interlibrary Loan, WorldShare Collection Manager, WorldShare Record Manager and WorldShare License Manager. More OCLC services will be added to the Community Center in the future.

The Community Center enables library staff who use WorldShare and WorldCat Discovery services to find information they need in one place, including product updates, news, upcoming events and discussion boards. Users can provide feedback and suggestions to peers and to the OCLC product teams to help improve and enhance products and services.

The Community Center was inspired by the success of the OCLC Developer Network, where developers share ideas about a variety of OCLC services, and the WMS User Support Center, where libraries access news and information about WorldShare Management Services and share best practices.

Library staff can sign in with the same credentials used to access WMS, WorldShare services or the staff view for WorldCat Discovery to participate in the Community Center. Staff can create a profile and join the community related to specific services of interest.

The new Community Center makes it easy for users to contribute to discussions using listserv-like email functionality, offer feedback, and make connections with peers who use the same OCLC services.
