Join Core and OCLC for our first orientation to the new WMS Sandbox access available exclusively for Core members. This session will take place on Thursday, November 17, from 12:00 – 1:00 pm CT. The session will be recorded and shared with Core members afterward.
OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services (WMS) is a cloud-based library management platform that provides a single interface to search across the full collection and all databases, find items in other libraries, view item availability, place holds, review accounts, renew items, and more.
To help our members learn new skills to grow their careers, we’re excited to offer access to the Core OCLC WMS Sandbox. Any Core member can request a login to learn how to use the WMS system and get hands-on practice at no additional cost. Even if your library doesn’t use WMS, this unique learning opportunity gives library workers who want to learn new skills and systems the ability to work directly in a library management system.
Learn more about WMS, its features, what’s available in the Core WMS Sandbox, and how you can take advantage of this unique learning opportunity.
The last 15 minutes of this session will include Q&A time for members who already have a login and want to ask specific questions about the overall system, the modules available, and the best way to get started.
We’ll hold additional orientation sessions next year for those who can’t attend this month’s session.
