Implementing change: Realizing the results of collaborating in the cloud
Libraries share many common challenges: scarce resources, increased user demand and ever more complex collections, systems and workflows. To help manage these challenges, today’s cloud-based library management services are offering workflows that save time and discovery solutions that meet users’ expectations.
Libraries using these services are seeing drastic reductions in the time it takes for routine tasks because of the integration in the cloud between libraries, applications, partners and data. Not only can information be shared between departments, but between libraries, improving quality and relevance as it’s enhanced along the way.
As a result, libraries save staff time and money while improving efficiency, workflows and user satisfaction. In short, cloud-based library management services, like OCLC WorldShare® Management Services, require less time in your library’s back office. This provides more time and resources to do the things that make your institution truly unique and that help you serve your users better.
