Your library at Webscale: How radical collaboration is redefining library management services
Sponsored by: OCLC and Library Journal. Aired February 21, 2012.
The library community has indicated that traditional management systems lack the flexibility and connectivity to meet the changing needs of their users. And while demand for library services has never been higher, new collaborative and innovative solutions are needed now more than ever.
As the first cooperative management services for libraries, OCLC WorldShare™ Management Services provide all the applications for cataloging, acquisitions, license management and circulation, and a next-gen discovery experience for library users. This newly architected and streamlined approach frees resources to focus on higher priority projects. WorldShare Management Services are built on the new OCLC WorldShare™ Platform—the vehicle for big library collaboration.
