2010 ALA Annual Forum: Next Generation OPACs: Making the Most of Local Holdings Data

Time: June 26 (Saturday) 4-5:30 p.m.

Location: JW Marriott Hotel – Grand BR IV,  Washington, D.C.

The forum presents new programs and discovery tools designed to make local holdings easily accessible and understandable on the next generation OPAC platform. Learn about OCLC’s new WorldCat Local with choices of content solutions within local library, shared catalog, consortia, and more.  Discover next generation OPAC such as Primo and Primo-Central and their mechanisms that guide users to items of interest and bring "discovery" closer to "delivery".  Come explore Google’s OPAC's efforts making local holdings visible on Google Scholar’s platform. All global content is local for someone!
