Registration of EAST Retention Commitments in OCLC

OCLC has officially launched their Shared Print Registration Service, available to all full cataloging subscribers*.  EAST retention partners should plan on registering their commitments before January 2021, at which time Cohorts 1 and 2 will lose access to GreenGlass.  An email with further details was sent to EAST operational contacts at libraries who need to register (pdf).  OCLC offered an overview webinar on Wednesday, June 17th, 2020 (recording | slides). OCLC also offers a brief Shared Print Registration Training Video

The EAST Project Team held two webinars on the OCLC Registration Process for our membership. Here are the recording and slides.​

Following the EAST webinars, your library should complete the EAST Registration Survey, letting the Project Team know your plans for registration and optionally requesting that EAST act as a registration agent for your library. 

Further information on the OCLC registration service is available at:
