Why did the Library implement WorldCat?

In short, our old ILS was being retired and we needed to find a replacement. After much deliberation, WorldCat and WMS, the ILS it is associated with, were chosen as the best options to provide our users with the features and access they have come to expect.

WorldCat Discovery offers researchers more specific searching, as well as access to a larger world of scholarship. It also allows Faculty and graduate students to more easily place document delivery requests to books and other items held at libraries around the world.
