Computers in Libraries publishes article on Pepperdine University's OCLC WorldShare implementation
The article, which is titled "Implementing a new cloud computing library management service," is the story of how Pepperdine University migrated its library management functions to the cloud using what is now known as OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services (WMS).
This implementation story is told from two vantage points: that of the library and that of the service provider.
Authors Michael Dula and Lynne Jacobsen of Pepperdine University Libraries and Tyler Ferguson and Rob Ross of OCLC were the principal collaborators for this pilot project, which took place between June and December 2010. In this article, the authors outline the stages of adopting and deploying OCLC WMS. The process described and the advice shared, however, apply to the adoption of other systems as well.
