Join this webinar to learn how WorldShare Management Services (WMS) have enabled libraries to free up resources so they can focus on the higher priority projects and programs that make their institutions unique and enable them to serve their users better.

Vanessa Garofalo, Technical Services Librarian at Southeastern University, will share how WMS enabled her to review and streamline library workflows to improve staff efficiency. Vanessa will also discuss how she managed the implementation of WMS at Clearwater Christian College, where she was the library director through June 2014.

Daphne Kouretas, Senior Implementation and Effective Use Manager at OCLC, will share examples of return-on-investment from libraries that have implemented WMS as well as tips for evaluating workflows to improve efficiency.

During this session you’ll learn how:

  • Your library can save staff time and money by improving efficiency
  • Your users can benefit from enhanced discovery and staff efficiencies
  • WMS is different from traditional library management systems.

During this one-hour detailed demonstration of WorldShare Management Services, you will learn how WorldShare License Manager brings together the two key features of electronic resource management: (1) knowledge about licenses that govern their purchase and use, and (2) knowledge base and linking technology that connect users to needed content in a single place.

License Manager: You will see how to reduce the complexity of managing all of your licenses and how you can eliminate the need to synchronize data across multiple interfaces to manage license agreements, rights, access and resolution to full text.

WorldCat knowledge base: You will see how the knowledge base provides comprehensive data about the e-resources of member libraries, automatically updating records in WorldCat, thus giving instant access to licensed resources for users. Also, you will see there is no additional necessary uploading or synchronization of licensed resources with local catalogs.

  • Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, North America [UTC -5]
