Staff members from the NWU Library Services attended the Annual Regional Meeting of Sabinet held at the scenic Woodmead Country Club on the 25th of July.

Eric van Lubeek of OCLC Netherlands introduced products and services available with special focus on the new WorldShare Interlibrary Loans System that NWU is going to implement soon. This new system is cloud-based and more patron-centered. Sabinet appealed to the stakeholders who need training on the new ILL to ensure that staff are adequately trained.

Pierre Malan (Director Client Services: Sabinet) discussed how they add value to Information Services through Sabinet Legal, SAMedia, Interlending (Worldshare) and SAePublications journal platform.

Some impressions from staff:

“The meeting was informative in seeing what other services are available through Sabinet, a great place to network with fellow librarians.”

“It was good to meet our colleagues and get together as a profession. It is important to be informed and updated with the latest developments on different platforms.”
