OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services Platform

The use of OCLC’s “WorldShare Management Services” platform has expanded worldwide since its creation in 2010 in the US.

  1. Allows data sharing,
  2. Improves library workflow,
  3. Allows participating libraries to share costs and resources,
  4. Provides ways to manage library collections,
  5. Provides a number of ways for collaboration by participating libraries.
