For many years, the University of Winnipeg Library has been working with OCLC and using a variety of OCLC services, including cataloging, resource sharing and discovery. According to the Dean, adding the few more services that make up the WorldShare Management Services suite was a good fit for the library for the future.

"UW Library has been successfully using OCLC services for many of our core activities. When we reached that critical juncture of needing to migrate from our old system, it made good business sense for us to simply build on the good things we were already doing with OCLC."
