OCLC is a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
 
Libraries have been cooperating on cataloguing, collection management and resource sharing services for decades. In that time, we have enjoyed the benefits of networked services - no local software or hardware, elimination of maintenance and support costs, lower overall expense and better scalability.
 
OCLC through its new WorldShare Management Services (WMS) now offers libraries the chance to revitalise traditional services by sharing workflows, activities, data and standards.
