University of Winnipeg readies to go live with OCLC WorldShare Management Services by end of the year
- 08 Nov 2018

The University of Winnipeg, a member of the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries, has selected OCLC WorldShare Management Services as its new cloud-based library services platform.

WorldShare Management Services (WMS) provides all of the applications needed to manage a library, including acquisitions, circulation, resource sharing, metadata and electronic resource management, and a discovery service for library users. It also includes a range of reports that help libraries better understand their activities and track key metrics over time.

For many years, the University of Winnipeg Library has been working with OCLC and using a variety of OCLC services, including cataloging, resource sharing and discovery. According to the Dean, adding the few more services that make up the WMS suite was a good fit for the library for the future.

As part of the OCLC library cooperative and with WorldCat as its foundation, WMS enables libraries to draw on the collaborative data and work of libraries worldwide for more efficient workflows. WMS also provides libraries with the unique opportunity to share innovation, applications, infrastructure, vision and success in serving their users.

The University of Winnipeg Library is the heart of the downtown campus, providing vibrant spaces and resources for students, faculty, and community members to pursue their academic goals. The library serves as a vital component in supporting academic excellence, student diversity and access, and an outstanding student experience.

The University of Winnipeg Library is currently implementing WMS and plans to go live with the service by the end of the year.

Swiss Library Service Platform to base new national library services on Ex Libris Alma Platform and Primo Solution
- 12 Oct 2018

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, has announced that the Swiss Library Service Platform A.G. (SLSP) has opted to base Switzerland's new national library service for academic universities on the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform, with the Ex Libris Primo® solution providing discovery and delivery services to users. The new platform will enable academic libraries across Switzerland to collaborate, improve services and efficiencies, reduce silos, and eliminate duplication of effort.

The decision will see over 600 libraries across 130 institutions move from the Aleph®, Intota®, and Virtua library systems to the Alma platform and from the Summon®, SFX, and EBSCO Discovery Service tools to the Primo solution.

SLSP was formed by the merger of the six library networks that serve the Swiss academic community in the German, French, and Italian language regions. With the new library service center, the current cooperation within each language region will be raised to the national level, the duplication of work and library resources across the country will be reduced, and institutions that were previously served by smaller networks will continue to benefit from state-of-the-art services in the long term.

OCLC and Taylor&Francis partner to create and deliver high-quality catalogue records to libraries
- 11 Oct 2018

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has announced a partnership with academic publisher Taylor&Francis to create and deliver high-quality catalogue records representing important scholarly works to libraries.

As an OCLC cataloguing partner, Taylor&Francis will provide published works for OCLC's team of professional cataloguers to create high-quality records to be added to WorldCat and delivered to libraries.

OCLC will create 7,000 full-level MARC records annually and deliver records through WorldShare Collection Manager to Taylor&Francis global library customers. In addition, OCLC will automatically maintain WorldCat holdings for Taylor&Francis customers with an OCLC Cataloguing and Metadata Subscription.

Taylor&Francis has partnered with OCLC for years by providing metadata to help libraries represent their collections more completely and efficiently for discovery of materials. The new agreement expands the partnership to include the creation and delivery of MARC records.

Books are published under the Taylor&Francis, Routledge, Garland Science and CRC Press imprints. Libraries can check the Taylor&Francis page on the OCLC website for status updates and instructions for use.

LIUC - Universitą Cattaneo opts to move to Ex Libris Alma, Primo, and Leganto solutions
- 10 Oct 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Italy's LIUC - Universitą Cattaneo will be moving to the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform, Primo® discovery and delivery solution, and Leganto course reading list solution.

Because of the diversity of the technological solutions currently in place at LIUC, information has accumulated in silos and problems have developed with the management of e resources and the provision of access to them.

With the move to the Ex Libris solutions, LIUC will benefit from tight integration between discovery, resource management, and resource lists, which are all based on the Ex Libris cloud platform. The effective unified management of both print resources and the university's increasing collection of e resources will support a large, rapidly growing community of users in Italy.
