University of Nebraska Omaha is 100th OCLC WorldShare Management Services user in production

Criss Library staff hosts open house to introduce new library management, discovery services

The University of Nebraska Omaha is now live with OCLC WorldShare Management Services, making it the 100th institution worldwide to fully implement the new Web-based, cooperative library management and discovery services.

“We wanted a library management system that was cutting-edge,” said Steve Shorb, Dean of the Criss Library at the University of Nebraska Omaha. “Moving to WorldShare Management Services is going to allow us to keep pace with current and emerging trends in technology and take full advantage of new developments and applications created specifically for libraries as they become available.”

A survey of teachers who instruct American middle and secondary school students finds that digital technologies have become central to their teaching and professionalization:

  • Mobile technology has become central to the learning process, with 73% of teachers saying that they and/or their students use their cell phones in the classroom or to complete assignments
  • More than four in ten teachers use e-readers (45%) and tablet computers (43%) in their classrooms or to complete assignments
  • 62% say their school does a “good job” supporting teachers’ efforts to bring digital tools into the learning process, and 68% say their school provides formal training in this area.
