A combination of products and services allows libraries to manage their electronic collections, from the acquisitions stage to the management of subscriptions, to the automatic management of holdings and records in the library catalogue, facilitating access for users directly to the electronic resource.
With a SabiCat subscription, which includes the WorldCat knowledge base and the WorldShare Collection Manager at no extra charge, libraries can automate collection management and access processes for electronic resources. By adding the WorldShare License Manager service, libraries can easily manage the subscription process and the entire electronic resource management process.
