  1. 1. Migrating to OCLC WMS As part of the Nebraska Independent College Library Consortium (NICLC)
  2. 2. NICLC • 9 consortium members • Formed in January 1991 • Shared ILS/server/system administrator • Contract renewal date for ILS June 30 2012
  3. 3. adfsd •Two consortium members decided to stay with ILS while seven decided to move to OCLC WMS •College presidents had to vote to approve changes to the bylaws and the contract for OCLC WMS.
  4. 4. • Last day to use old ILS July 7, 2012 • Data migration October 25, 2012 • Because of this gap in service, OCLC gave us access to a WMS circulation shell
  5. 5. • • • Our 5 year strategic plan includes providing an integrated discovery service to students Our students frequently tell us how much they love OCLC WMS and how easy it is to use. Faculty interest: Increased requests for information literacy instruction: 2011-2012 45 faculty requests 734 students taught 2012-2013 72 faculty requests 1,241 students taught
  6. 6. “All the forms that the implementation and data migration teams had us fill out were clear and self explanatory.” “There was an abundance of training, all extremely well done. Excellent trainers. Nice workable sized training. I never felt that "This is over my head" nor was it boring.”
  7. 7. “Cataloging is just so much easier in OCLC WMS.” “With our old ILS the catalogers from each institution had to meet frequently to figure out how to handle problems and there were a lot of problems caused by sharing the system. We don’t have those problems now. It’s a startling difference.”
  8. 8. “We had to learn a new system, but it’s so easy to use!” Workflow change: upload serials holdings by KBART file
  9. 9. Acquisitions: Cataloging items as we receive them. Best of all: All acquisitions records in one place.
  10. 10. Our acquisitions assistant has time to spend on organizing and cataloging our archives and special collections
  11. 11. The college presidents and CFOs felt that because we no longer shared a server we no longer needed a shared system administrator. They asked OCLC to bill each college individually rather than bill the consortium. The college presidents voted to dissolve the consortium in May 2013.
  12. 12. Thank you! Julie Pinnell julie.pinnell@doane.edu
