在瞬息万变的教育环境中，学术型图书馆需要投入更多的时间和人力资源，才能满足师生的需求。 学术型图书馆为促进各自机构的成功进行着重要的工作，他们也在寻找能为此增色的工具。 OCLC 服务有助于简化图书馆工作流程，让工作人员可以利用工具和时间与学校建立好关系，发展本地馆藏，创建新的项目。
Make your collections visible wherever your users are
Librarians at Utrecht University understand that today's students usually begin their research with online sources outside the library. Rather than waiting for the users to come to them, the librarians took a proactive approach to integrating their collections with non-library online resources. Now, the library supports a better user experience and helps users find library resources more easily.
Exceed your users' search expectations
Dakota State University librarians knew that their library discovery interface was clunky and made it difficult to teach advanced searching techniques to their students, who are especially Internet-savvy. The library now offers a cleaner and more intuitive interface with regular improvements.
多年来，巴克尼尔大学 (Bucknell University) 的图书馆员注意到一种日益增长的趋势。 通过标准购买程序购进的资料使用时间仅为 20%。 那么，那些直接由学生或教师要求购买的资料又如何呢？ 80% 以上。 然而，要利用这一观察结果则要求图书馆能够大大简化搜索到发送的过程。
Provide better access to your special collections
In the past, if scholars or researchers wanted to view the Marandet Collection at The University of Warwick, they had to be on-site. However, with the introduction of software that stores, manages and delivers digital content online, they have been able to digitize this collection of French plays so they can now be enjoyed and accessed from anywhere in the world.
Bring users resources from across the globe
With an increased need from their students for a wide array of resources, librarians from the University of Glasgow Library realized that they needed to expand the range of their collections with the support of interlibrary loans. Their use of interlibrary loan has allowed them to offer resources from all over the globe in a quick and easy manner for their users, cutting time and costs.
Grant trouble-free access to all your library's e-resources
Libraries are investing a lot in e-resources, only to be faced with the challenge of granting access to e-resources off campus. Harper Adams University was able to overcome this by providing students with a seamless, anytime, anyplace solution for accessing their electronic collections.
高点大学 (High Point University) 的师生已经习惯于通过多个站点和多种服务来搜索资源。 现在，仅需借助单一的搜索平台，他们的图书馆就能提供范围广泛的电子内容的访问途径。 这一改变也更加方便全球的学习者查找仅收录在高点大学馆藏中的内容。
