 Empower your library’s journey to success

Designed to meet the complex and evolving needs of libraries, WorldShare Management Services (WMS) is an advanced library services platform. More than 600 libraries worldwide use WMS including national, research, academic, community college, and special libraries as well as consortia. No matter your library’s size, WMS provides users with fast, reliable access to your collections and the world’s knowledge while improving your workflows.

Anh1Streamline workflows

With WorldCat® data as its foundation, libraries using WMS experience improved workflows and a drastic reduction in the time it takes to perform routine tasks, including e-resource management and cataloging. They have also been able to reallocate full-time staff to undertake new initiatives, such as cataloging special collections, creating LibGuides for users and redesigning library websites.

Realize cost savingsAnh2

Traditional ILS systems often require costs to maintain servers and software. These costs are eliminated with WMS, a cloud-based system. Additionally, there are no fees related to the purchase of separate serials management, course reserves, OpenURL resolver, and A – Z list services, all of which are included with a WMS subscription.






Anh3Provide an intuitive search experience for your users

Your WMS subscription includes WorldCat Discovery, which enables searching simultaneously across all your library’s electronic, digital, and physical resources, rather than accessing multiple services and interfaces. WorldCat Discovery makes it simple for your users to find the information they need anytime through a responsive interface that works well on phones and tablets. Day or night, across town or across the globe, your users can easily search your catalog, link to the full text you provide for them and find the information they need.
