Save staff time and reduce manual efforts

Storing, sharing, and managing licenses in a central system enables staff and library systems to quickly find and use accurate and consistent information. With License Manager, you have a searchable repository for your electronic resource licenses, not an inefficient filing cabinet filled with hard copies.

Get users to the electronic resources they need

Users get frustrated when links are broken or access to a resource is denied. License Manager ensures your users access the resources they need quickly through a link resolver and an organized A-Z list of a library’s electronic titles.

"OCLC’s License Manager is a global e-resource management tool that allows libraries to capitalize on collective development by the community while maintaining their localized data. The platform provides the potential to develop partnerships between publishers, libraries and OCLC to develop a truly global database of e-resource information."
