“Selecting OCLC Web-scale 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.”

“Another reason why we looked at WMS? We wanted a really, truly integrated library system—one organization that had our cataloging, our data, our bibliographic records and our acquisitions. And we wanted to see something that had modules that worked with each other, and that work with each other successfully.”

Sonia Luna-Lamas, Associate Director and Head of Technical Services,
St. Thomas University, Law Library

“One of the things I see with Web-scale Management Services is that it’s a continuation and an expansion of a partnership that we’ve had a long, long time with OCLC.”
