WMS offers librarians a cost-effective way to manage workflows efficiently, and improve access to library collections and services for their students, faculty and staff. The four university libraries are members of the State Assisted Academic Library Council of Kentucky (SAALCK), which was formed more than 40 years ago by the deans of the academic libraries to provide an opportunity to meet and discuss common needs and concerns.” (via OCLC)

RLUK and OCLC partner for shared collection management and visibility goals

“OCLC and Research Libraries UK (RLUK), a consortium of the largest research organisations in the UK and Ireland, today announced an expanded partnership that will help RLUK achieve key strategic objectives for shared collection management and resource discovery. Building on existing OCLC cataloguing arrangements, the new agreement offers RLUK members the opportunity to load their bibliographic metadata into WorldCat, the most comprehensive global network of data about library holdings and services. This data will then be used to facilitate better understanding and visibility of these resources for both RLUK as a group, and for individual members of the consortium.” (via OCLC)
