Fifteen more libraries join OCLC WorldShare Management Services community

Fifteen more libraries have announced that they have selected OCLC WorldShare Management Services, the first cooperative, Webscale library management services that streamline cataloging, acquisitions, circulation, license management and workflows, and offer a next-generation discovery tool for library users. This brings the number of libraries worldwide committed to using WorldShare Management Services to 210.

“UNCG believes that WorldShare Management Services are the next major advance in library cooperation,” said Tim Bucknall, Assistant Dean of University Libraries and Head of Electronic Resources and Information Technologies, University of North Carolina at Greensboro. “The services significantly reduce redundant and duplicative effort across libraries, thereby allowing each library to focus on their unique content and strengths.”
