OCLC is a non-profit cooperative that provides services, research and expertise to information industry professionals at libraries, museums and archives around the world. For more than 50 years, our members have worked together to create a culture and platform of mutual support. This enables us to do large-scale, future-focused research in order to leverage the latest technology on behalf of libraries and other knowledge institutions. In this presentation you’ll learn more about OCLC’s unique, non-profit, member-driven mission as well as specifics about some of the services offered to our members. These include WorldShare Management Services, a complete set of library management applications and platform services built on a flexible, cloud-based platform. WorldCat Discovery is a unified search experience that helps people navigate research journeys to find and get resources from your library and libraries worldwide. No single library can hold every item its users may need so the Resource Sharing Services lends and borrows resources locally, in groups, and around the world.  CONTENTdm builds digital collections with integrated tools that let you manage your archives, create a branded look for your library's digital collections, and showcase your unique resources in new ways to give researchers better viewing options. Together, we provide shared technology services, research and programs that help organizations meet the needs of their users, while making a significant impact in the communities they serve.
