Built by the world’s largest library community
The future is cooperative
Cooperation, innovation, and choice have been the heartbeat of WorldShare Management Services (WMS) since its inception. WMS changed the market. It changed the way libraries work. And it continues to be a catalyst for new solutions.

Big improvements without big disruptions
“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. In a time of constraint, this is the path of optimum efficiency and minimal disruption for UW’s library staff, partners, and our community of users.”
Dean of the Library, University of Winnipeg
