OCLC WorldShare Management Services will be the new library system. Library director Hubert Krekels and director OCLC in the Netherlands Saskia Leferink signed the contract in Forum Library.

Early 2018, the Library expects to migrate its automated library processes to an integrated software system called WorldShare Management Services (WMS). The user will notice that the discovery service Global Search will be replaced by WorldCat Discovery. The lending desks will switch to WorldShare Circulation for lending of books etc. The Library expects to operate more cost efficient with this new software.
