With WorldShare License Manager, you can:
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.
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 your license agreements, rights, access and resolution to full text more easily.
Automatically gather usage statistics from COUNTER 4 and 5-compliant vendors. License Manager supports all COUNTER 4 report types from more than 100 SUSHI compliant vendors via both manual upload and SUSHI vendor connections. For COUNTER 5 reports, it also supports both automatic and manual harvesting featuring SUSHI connections to more than 30 COUNTER-compliant 5 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.
Usage statistics gathered from COUNTER-compliant vendors inform your decision making as you select and maintain your library’s e-resources. This helps to ensure your library provides access to the e-resources your users need.
WorldShare License Manager simplifies electronic resource management by consolidating the information you need to keep licenses active and to show your users exactly what resources they can access. License Manager stores, shares, manages and reports on all information and actions related to licensed resources in a central, searchable system.
