Maximize delivery speed of your resource sharing service
Find out how smart fulfillment functionality across all OCLC resource sharing services empowers libraries to meet user expectations.
OCLC Resource Sharing for Groups provides a seamless experience for library users and simplified workflows for staff—whether for digital or print items.
Group members have choice and flexibility as this service is provider-neutral and integrates with most discovery services and library management systems. Additionally, WorldShare ILL, Tipasa, and ILLiad form a familiar foundation, so libraries currently using these services don’t need lengthy implementations or additional training.
Participating libraries can lend and borrow resources from group members, regional partners, or the global OCLC resource sharing network of more than 10,000 libraries. Since it’s driven by data, there’s fast, predictable delivery and everything is managed in one place. Plus, library users enjoy a one-stop view for estimated arrival times, delivery options, and status tracking.
