Prospective eSerials partners

In July 2006, we launched the eSerials Holdings service. This service automates the process of setting and maintaining a library’s Level 1 holdings information for ISSN-based electronic serials in the OCLC WorldCat database. This valuable service is available at no charge to OCLC’s member libraries.

We are inviting you to partner with us on this endeavor and increase the value of your serials management service to libraries. Working together, we can offer libraries value-added services including improved processes and workflow efficiencies.

Add value to your offerings

  • When libraries use the eSerials Holdings service along with your serials management solution, they get more from their investment, including the setting and maintenance of electronic serials holdings without added cataloging workload.
  • Adding the value of the eSerials Holdings service to your offering can help you further differentiate your service.
  • An eSerials Holdings service partnership can help you maintain current customers and potentially add new ones.
  • Partnering with OCLC can help you expand your promotions and sales, since your logo and a link to your Web site are placed on the eSerials promotional materials (both Web and print). We also provide messaging and offer a co-branded flyer.
