Is your museum library hidden from view?

Museum libraries around the world are struggling to promote their invaluable collections to online audiences. Rare manuscripts, artefacts, and photographs are among the many assets hidden from view.

OCLC helps transform access to your museum library collections. WorldCat and WorldShare® Management Services (WMS) open up the unique assets that museum libraries offer.

We work with libraries, archives, and museums to bring collections to light.
