Automatically maintain accurate links

License Manager takes full advantage of the WorldCat® knowledge base to automatically maintain your library’s holdings. By combining data about your collections with linking features, you can improve the quality of your catalog and make your electronic materials easier to find, share, manage and use. Plus, you can automatically maintain WorldCat holdings as your collections change.

Get seamless integration with existing subscriptions

License Manager is available as an add-on to your WorldShare Management Services subscription or integrates with your existing OCLC Cataloging Subscription and WorldCat records. With either option, it allows your library to manage to manage your license agreements, rights, access and resolution to full text more easily

Streamline workflows with "crowd-sourced" templates

Prepare licenses using "crowd-sourced" license templates or clone previous local work from within License Manager. This takes advantage of the greater knowledge of WorldShare libraries, simplifies your workflows and saves you time.

Inform your decision making with usage statistics

Automatically gather usage statistics from COUNTER 3 and 4-compliant vendors. License Manager supports all COUNTER 4 report types from more than 60 SUSHI compliant vendors. Reports from vendors that do not offer SUSHI report harvesting can still be uploaded directly into License Manager using our online report parsing technology. Statistics gathered from COUNTER-compliant vendors inform your decision making as you maintain your e-resource license lifecycles. This helps to ensure your library provides access to the electronic resources your users need.
