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.

"I found the acquisitions module in our legacy system very difficult to use. So I really appreciate now that I'm using Acquisitions in WMS, how easy it is, and how I can see visuals of how my budget is being spent."
