Help each other find new ways to make the library experience better.

When people connect and collaborate, they learn from each other, streamline their workflows and improve their patrons' experience in the library.

You are invited to attend the 2017 OCLC WMS Global Community + User Group Meeting at OCLC's global headquarters in Dublin, Ohio, USA, on 27–28 September. You are also invited to pre- and post-meeting events on 26 and 29 September.

This unique, global event will focus on sharing insights, workflows and enhancement ideas with your library peers and directly with OCLC's product management and development teams. Based on community feedback from the 2016 Global Meeting, we've expanded the offerings available for this year's gathering to include optional pre- and post-meeting activities. The meeting registration fee will be waived for presenters.*

*Applies only to the core two-day meeting, not the optional pre- and post-meeting activities.


The WMS Community Leadership Team is excited to invite you to the second annual WMS Global Community + User Group Meeting. Building on last year's experience, we have developed an exciting program that offers WMS users even more opportunities for collaboration with each other and the OCLC product teams. We are counting on our community's active participation again to make this year's meeting a success.

We look forward to seeing you in Dublin, Ohio, USA, in September!
