Janet Lute, Integrated Library System Coordinator, Princeton University; Katharine Treptow Farrell, Assistant University Librarian for Technical Services and Head, Order Division, Princeton University.

The aim of this session is to discuss Princeton University Library’s implementation of OCLC WorldCat Selection, an integrated tool for selecting and ordering firm orders. The presenters will talk about the reasons for purchasing this tool, the implementation steps and setup, selector input and use, and how the orders are loaded into Voyager and processed. They will outline issues in working with book vendors to receive records and will also discuss the impact that this has had on ordering throughput time and budgeting. WorldCat Selection is a web-based tool that is ILS neutral and so this session could be of interest to a wider audience beyond Voyager users.
