Tilburg University's road to WMS
Marc van den Berg, Tilburg University, Netherlands at UKSG Conference, London
“Selecting OCLC WorldShare Management Services was one of the easiest decisions I've had to make. Discovery of print, media, and electronic collections through WorldCat Local, along with single-button access to interlibrary loan, makes it a superior tool. For local inventory control, WMS greatly simplifies and streamlines acquisitions, cataloging, and circulation, maximizing efficiencies and minimizing staffing needed.”
Stefanie Wittenbach, University Librarian
Texas A&M University-San Antonio
"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."

WorldShare Management Services' implementation
Iris Garcia, St. Thomas University Law Library at FLA Conference
"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."
