We understand that selecting a new library management system is a major decision, and the research, review and evaluation process is different for every institution. We have a team of Library Services Consultants who can help you get all of the information you need to make an informed decision.
More than 600 libraries worldwide have selected WMS, a cloud-based library services platform that helps you more efficiently manage all your library’s collections. With WorldCat and other shared data at its foundation, WMS enables you to draw on the collaborative work of libraries worldwide for more streamlined workflows. Launched in 2011, WMS provides advanced technology and tools for both your library staff and users.
WMS gave me the time to do several big projects including scanning and digitizing our archives to help celebrate our college’s 100th anniversary. And now we’re really promoting that I can help students with reference questions. And now I’m spending more time helping students than doing technical services.
WMS, with its WorldCat Discovery interface, is the right tool for open access. The metadata is better. The searching is way better. And you can use the advanced search tools to find what you want.
