Previously presented?

I have had previous presentations about my experience using WorldCat with Submissions:2016/Beyond the basics of citation templates & Submissions:2015/How I supercharged the bibliography of a featured article – the (mostly) pros and (a few) cons of Worldcat and the OCLC. This will be more of a "how-to" presentation than those two.
