Terminology Consortium - "A library consortium is any local, regional, or national cooperative association of libraries that provides for the systematic and effective coordination of the resources of schools, public, academic, and special libraries and information centers, for improving services to the clientele of such libraries. (US Federal Communications Commission) Well be using the word consortium interchangeably with group for the purposes of this presentation. OPAC (Online public access catalog) - is an online database of materials held by a library or group of libraries. Users typically search a library catalog to locate books, periodicals, audio/visual materials or other items under control of a library.
Terminology Workflow – consists of a sequence of connected steps. It is a depiction of a sequence of operations; a model to represent real work for further assessment, e.g., for describing a reliably repeatable sequence of operations. Lender / lending library – the library supplying the item; you are the lending library when you supply something to another library. Borrower / borrowing library – the library requesting the item; you are the borrowing library when you request something from another library. NRE (Navigator Request Engine) – the guts of Navigator, much of the work done in NRE is reflected in Navigator, the interface for request management.
Policy Changes Please note that some policy changes may be needed in your library for the implementation of WorldCat Navigator: OCLC must be able to place holds on available items. OCLC must be able to place multiple holds on the same title.
Item held by your group/consortium: Navigator request button
Staff Training Navigator is the staff request management interface. It is used for both the borrowing and the lending functions. You will be given an account in NRE to access your requests. Library Staff only have access to the requests made by their patrons or that have been sent to them as a lender.
