It is possible to build a relevant, modern search and fulfillment system for your users without breaking the bank. In 2009, Washington State University joined a number of its Orbis Cascade Alliance peers in licensing OCLC's WorldCat Local. The presenters will describe the efforts that brought the WSU WorldCat service online in August 2009, including the technical services, systems, and instructional components of the implementation. They will also describe the challenges of supporting library services based upon a networklevel software solution and of implementing a WorldCat Localbased system while simultaneously making other major changes in public services.
