Target Audience: Technical services librarians, collection development librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to explain what EOCR (Electronic Order Confirmation Records) is and how it streamlines technical services workflow.
2. Participants will be able to assess the scope and limitations of EOCR and whether it should be implemented in their library.

Have you reviewed your acquisitions workflow recently? Is it as automated and efficient as it could be? How would you like it if you didn't have to do pre-order searching in your catalog, didn't have to download bibliographic records, didn't have to create order records in your online system and didn't have to input invoice data for most of your titles? No, it is not a joke - you can do all this by implementing EOCR (Electronic Order Confirmation Records) and OCLC WorldCat Cataloging Partners. Many vendors offer this service for firm as well as approval book orders. This session will provide examples from one vendor on how they provide EOCR services, and a library's perspective on how they were implemented.
