Get users to the electronic resources they need

Users get frustrated when links are broken or when access to a resource is denied. License Manager ensures your users access the resources they need quickly through a link resolver and an organized, up-to-date A – Z list of your 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."

Rene Erlandson
Former Virtual Services Director, University of Nebraska Omaha
