"Above all, we liked that OCLC is a library cooperative. We are members working together toward a common vision sharing many of the same challenges. And it is through this shared vision that we hope to eliminate many of the barriers that prevent access to information."

"The move to WorldShare Management Services has been very well received. We are now able to provide access to our collections to researchers around the world. Users have told us they like the new discovery interface, and it's easier for them to find what they're looking for. We are integrating our electronic collections through the WorldCat knowledge base to help our users find what they need through a single search interface. We're very happy with our progress."

Christine Giannoni
Museum Librarian, The Field Museum Library
