Libraries share many common challenges including ever more complex collections, systems and workflows, as well as increased user demand. To help manage these challenges, today’s cloud-based library management services are offering workflows that save library staff time—and discovery solutions that meet users’ needs. Libraries using these services are seeing drastic reductions in the time it takes to perform routine tasks because of the integration between libraries, applications, partners and data.As a result of doing things differently, libraries save staff time and money while streamlining workflows and improving efficiency. In short, cloud-based library management services like OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services allow you to manage your library’s back office tasks differently—from Acquisitions to Cataloging to Collection Development.Join Vanessa Garofalo, Technical Services Librarian at Southeastern University, to learn how she has worked to review her library’s workflows, including cataloging workflows, to streamline them for the sake of staff efficiency using WorldShare Management Services.Vanessa also will discuss the impact WorldShare Management Services had on Clearwater Christian College, where she was the library director through June 30, 2014, and how she managed the implementation and change process there.
