Manage physical serials activities in the same acquisition workflows

WorldShare Acquisitions was designed with physical serials management built in, not separately developed, configured and priced like other, more traditional acquisitions systems.

Save time and increase efficiency

With WorldShare Acquisitions, data and workflow activities are shared as needed for a particular task, which eliminates the need to move between multiple systems for different formats. This saves time for your staff and makes library management more efficient.

"My staff really did not like the acquisitions module on our old ILS, and they refused to use it. Now that we are using WorldShare Acquisitions, it is much easier to track everything because all of our acquisitions records are in one place. It has been revolutionary for us."
