"Selecting OCLC WorldShare Management Services was one of the easiest decisions I've had to make. Discovery of print, media and electronic collections through WorldCat® Local, along with single-button access to interlibrary loan, makes it a superior tool. For local inventory control, WMS greatly simplifies and streamlines acquisitions, cataloging and circulation, maximizing efficiencies and minimizing staffing needed."

Stefanie Wittenbach
University Librarian, Texas A&M University - San Antonio

"Another reason why we looked at WMS? We wanted a really, truly integrated library system—one organization that had our cataloging, our data, our bibliographic records and our acquisitions. And we wanted to see something that had modules that worked with each other and that work with each other successfully."

Sonia Luna-Lamas
Associate Director and Head of Technical Services, St. Thomas University, Law Library
