The Akkon Hochschule für Humanwissenschaften, in Berlin, has selected OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services (WMS) as its new, cloud-based library services platform to improve workflows, support research, and share resources worldwide through WorldCat.
The publicly accredited Akkon Hochschule is Germany's first Hochschule (an institution of higher education similar to a college or university) of human sciences, established in 2009. Its core objectives are to make a sustainable contribution to the security of supply, social justice, and preservation of resources, as well as to contribute to the further development of the human sciences, and to inspire innovation.
WMS is a cloud-based modular library system that offers its users a modern and intuitive user interface. Not only does this allow for easier management of electronic, digital, and print media, but it also provides researchers and students at Akkon Hochschule with greater access to data and knowledge through WorldCat Discovery, an integrated user service.Click here to read the original press release.
