This is the second in a series of webinars exploring ways CRL member libraries can improve discovery of resources available from CRL. Although CRL makes 1.4 million records available through its catalog and all major discovery layers, as well as in files to load in your local catalog, getting the records in front of patrons can still be a challenge.  

This presentation will focus on CRL collections in WorldCat and the Knowledge Base. All of CRL’s electronic resources are represented in OCLC’s Knowledge Base; join CRL’s webinar to learn how your patrons can best access these resources and understand the overall strengths and range of CRL’s collections. 

CRL hosts webinars throughout the year. Participation is open to all librarians, staff, and faculty at CRL member institutions. Most are recorded and available for later access. Additional information on accessing webinars can be found under Membership.
