WMS library staff guide

An overview of some of the main functions and features in the WMS library system. A combination of OCLC support materials and the longer training sessions that OCLC provided during the implementation. Ths guide is for library staff and not library users.


The training video for the new Library Search discovery system (aka WorldCat) is available on Sharepoint along with the script for the session. If you have any difficulty accessing the link, please request access via Sharepoint.

Subsequent videos in this guide cover some of the same features in smaller sections. They are not specifically for the UHI version of Library Search so there may be slight changes to the functionality.

Brief Overview

An introduction to the new Library Search discovery layer (the product name is WorldCat Discovery). The videos provide an overview of the system, but our own settings may vary slighlty in the UHI branded version. Specific videos for UHI will be created after we are live on the new system.
