Maastricht University selects OCLC WorldShare Management Services and moves its library management system to the cloud. Tuesday 16 December 2014 a contract has been signed between Ingrid Wijk, Director of the Maastricht University Library and Language Centre, and Saskia Leferink, General Manager van OCLC BV. The new partnership means Maastricht University becomes the second university in the Netherlands to move to WorldShare Management Services (WMS).
“Implementing WorldShare Management Services means a cost-effective way for us to streamline our library processes” said Ingrid Wijk. “Together with the implementation of the Worldshare Platform, the users will be able to search libraries holdings not only on a national level, but also internationally. Because WMS is cloud-based, it means the system scales as we grow, without us needing to administer any upgrades or maintain hardware.”
