The NEBASE Hour for April 2008 is the "OCLC Online Service Center".
Please note that this is a rescheduling of the March NEBASE Hour, which was canceled due to illness.
The NEBASE Hour is a FREE, monthly, online information session on OCLC products and services.
The NEBASE Hour is a live presentation that you will access from your own computer via the Web. Audio is available via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). You may ask any questions you have during the session. The session will be recorded for anyone who may want to see it again or who cannot attend it at the scheduled time. IMPORTANT: Please note that we are using new web conferencing software - Centra. Please read the information below this announcement for details about technical requirements and procedures for accessing live online sessions through Centra.
NEBASE Hour for April 2008: OCLC Online Service Center
April 2, 2008- 10:00am-11:00am (Central Time) Registration Deadline: March 31
The OCLC Online Service Center is the convenient way for you to purchase various OCLC products and services and manage your OCLC account information. The Web-based Online Service Center was designed to save you time and effort, which in turn saves your library money. Attend this session to learn how to use this secure, Web-based tool to order OCLC products and services as well as view, update and manage your OCLC account information.
The session will be conducted by Christa Burns, OCLC Member Services Coordinator for NEBASE. Participants will receive 1 hour of CE credit. There is no cost to participate in this session.
For more information and to register to attend this session, please go to our Training Portal.
INTRODUCING CENTRA LIVE! This Online Session will be conducted using Centra Live web conferencing software. For this reason it is crucial that you review the Centra Live technical requirements and perform the recommended Centra system check even if you've successfully attended previous Nebraska Library Commission Online Sessions. (Previous sessions used Genesys and Live Meeting software.) Please do this several days in advance of your scheduled session so you have plenty of time to update your system if necessary. Technical requirements (including a link to the system check) and general access instructions are available on the Nebraska Library Commission Online Sessions webpage.
AUDIO NOTE: Audio for Centra Live online sessions will be handled via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, as opposed to a telephone conference call. This means access to a telephone is not required. However, in order to hear the presentation attendees must be using a computer with a sound card and speakers. To ask questions and participate in class discussion, attendees will also need a microphone. If you don't have a microphone for your computer, you may request one from the Nebraska Library Commission, at no cost to you, by emailing Jeannette Powell at least a week in advance of your session. If only one individual is attending the session from a particular computer, a headset may be used in place of the speakers and microphone.
