Better Together: How Cooperative Management Integrates ALL of Your Collections

It has been over 18 months since OCLC introduced WorldShare, a new vision and strategic direction that signifies OCLC’s ongoing commitment to greater collaboration in library service delivery.

Today, more than 100 institutions on three continents are using OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services (WMS) – the first truly cooperative management service for libraries - proving that we accomplish more through collaborative solutions to enhance productivity.

As WMS adoption gathers momentum in Europe, OCLC would be delighted if you could join us on Tuesday 5th November at Cardiff Central Library, Wales for an informal update on these exciting developments.

As part of the session Andrew Hall, OCLC’s new Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland will introduce himself and OCLC.  Axel Kaschte, OCLC’s Product Strategy Director EMEA, will continue the session by exploring the challenges that gave rise to WorldShare Management Services and share the results from the libraries worldwide that have already implemented the service.  In addition, Axel will also discuss some of the experiences of recent European implementations, including Tilburg University in the Netherlands and Bishop Grosseteste University, the first live implementation of WMS in the UK.

To conclude the session, Elisabeth Robinson, OCLC Senior Product Manager will give attendees a true representation of Worldshare Management Services with a live demonstration and a ‘sneak-peek’ at some of the exciting developments planned for WMS in the near future. 

If you would like to join us, please register your attendance.
