Shared data

WorldCat serves as the foundation of WMS, providing bibliographic data to simplify many workflows. Beyond WorldCat, WMS allows libraries to share serials patterns, license terms, vendor records, and other information, decreasing redundant tasks across libraries. 

Shared infrastructure

WMS libraries benefit from shared technology infrastructure, which allows shared servers, simultaneous and automatic software updates, simplified communication with other libraries, and integration with other OCLC services.

Shared community 

WMS users are part of an active community within OCLC, a nonprofit library cooperative, and can collaborate to share best practices and suggest WMS enhancements to OCLC staff members--all which continues to guide the system's development and advancement.

Learn how the applications in WMS make it stand apart from other library management systems

“Using Acquisitions has saved our library staff time and improved accuracy since we’re able to manage everything online and in the system. Before, we used Excel spreadsheets and paper.”

“When we're weeding our reference collection, if we want something to move up to the main stacks, we can kind of do that right on the go. With Digby, inventory is easy. Location changes are great.”

 

Emma Hill Kepron,
Digital Initiatives Librarian, The University of Winnipeg

“We had an ERM module in our old system. It was a separate module that didn't communicate with our ILS. What I like about WMS and electronic resources is that not only is purchasing so much easier, everything is interrelated and seamless.”
