Libraries empower people and transform communities.
OCLC supports their success.
Working together, OCLC members explore trends that shape the future of all libraries. They share data, work and resources in ways that save time and money while improving service for their communities. And, collectively, they magnify the impact of libraries, representing the sum of all members’ efforts.
For more than 45 years, OCLC has helped libraries work together in ways that get information to people more quickly and efficiently. Thousands of libraries worldwide are active members of this global, nonprofit cooperative.
Our members share the ownership, assets and governance of the cooperative, working together to create value for libraries.
What's New at OCLC
In this semiannual update on the activities of the OCLC membership, we congratulate the University of Delaware on being the first ARL and the 200th library to implement WorldShare Management Services.
Among other updates, it highlights new research and membership reports and reviews the status of the transitions to WorldCat Discovery and WorldShare Interlibrary Loan.
