Web scale for libraries: a sea change for the 21st century

In April, OCLC announced plans to launch new services for web-scale library management: network-level tools for managing library collections through circulation and delivery, print and licensed acquisitions, and license management. These new services will complement existing OCLC web-scale services, such as cataloging, resource sharing and integrated discovery.

New services will be built upon new technologies and platforms that allow libraries to customize workflows based on the changing nature of their collections, their users and their business processes.
