TU Delft chooses OCLC Worldshare as library system

Share this on social media:

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) has selected OCLC WorldShare Management Services as its library management system.

WorldShare Management Services (WMS) provides cloud-based library management and discovery applications in an integrated suite, offering librarians a comprehensive way to manage library workflows efficiently, and improve access to library collections and services.
 
'Partnering with OCLC provides great opportunities to work together with other libraries,' said Wilma van Wezenbeek, director of TU Delft Library. 'We are already working with OCLC, university libraries in the Netherlands and the National Library to create a new shared infrastructure based on the WorldShare Platform. Now that we will be using WorldShare Management Services, we will play an even more active role in the global OCLC library community.'
 
'At OCLC, we are very pleased that the TU Delft Library has chosen our new WorldShare Management Services,' said Eric van Lubeek, vice-president and managing director for OCLC EMEA and APAC.

'This will enable the TU Delft Library to considerably streamline its workflows, to diminish the number of applications to manage, and to realise better alignment with related processes and systems. Management in the cloud and the use of new API technology lead to higher efficiency and lower costs for system maintenance, functional management and for hardware expenditures.'
