Connexion client documentation

Find documentation for the Windows-based Connexion client.

Windows 7 will no longer be supported as of 1/1/20. This is in response to end of support announced by the Microsoft Corporation.

 Note: Connexion client Web documents have the same content as the client online Help.


Connexion Support scope

OCLC Support is limited to settings internal to the Connexion Client software. OCLC Support can provide instructions but will no longer direct the work on registry settings, local software, or local hardware.

Changes to your local workstation configuration will require direct assistance from local IT support.
