"The difference with WMS is that you get a lot for what you’re paying. We wanted discovery… it’s included. Cataloging… it’s included. Plus, there’s no server to purchase or upgrade and we no longer have to worry about authority control or records maintenance."
Library Director, Lawrence Technological University
“Our classes are all hybrid with an online component, and we’ve set up links to course reserves in WorldCat Discovery for each class. The other thing that really helped us maintain services, even from another city, was joining the Digital Theological Library, the organization behind the Open Access Digital Theological Library. We were able to give our students access to literally millions of resources in a matter of hours, just by turning on collections in WorldShare Collection Manager.”
Webmaster & Technical Services Coordinator, Missio Seminary
