OCLC WorldShare License Manager

Share this on social media:

OCLC has announced the launch of OCLC WorldShare License Manager. This new service is said to help libraries meet the increasing challenges and complexities of electronic resource management.

The tool brings together knowledge about licences that govern their purchase and use, and linking technology that connects users to needed content in a single place.

License Manager is built on the OCLC WorldShare Platform and WorldCat knowledge base and promises to help library staff more effectively manage the selection, purchase and availability of databases and e-resources. This new service consolidates link resolution, subscriptions, licenses, vendor, access and rights management to enable web-scale management, discovery and delivery of licensed and electronic resources.

License Manager is supported as a stand-alone service that integrates with other library management systems or can be integrated with OCLC WorldShare Management Services.
