By registering for the FirstSearch® new user experience beta, your library will join a limited number of institutions selected to give input on changes coming to FirstSearch.
In some cases, we recommend that you do not participate in the beta, but plan your transition to the new experience for FirstSearch later on. Please plan to begin using the new service later, after the launch if your library:
Uses WorldCat Local
Uses WorldShare Management Services
Provides user-initiated interlibrary loan requesting
NOTE: The new interface requires use of one of the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Microsoft Internet Explorer, version 8 or 9. We are also testing with a variety of operating systems, browsers (including Safari) and devices to provide access on mobile and tablet devices in addition to desktops.
For more information on the transition timeline for the new service, please see the FirstSearch beta page.
Please submit only one registration form per institution. You may add additional users at your institution later.
