There were some times when I didn't think I would see the day.  But this week, WorldShare Management Services just saw its 100th library go live with the service.  We have dozens more in the queue, of course, but this 100th is quite a milestone. Kudos to the University of Nebraska Omaha!

The WorldShare Management Services team has continued to exceed my expectations.  Not that long ago, we had a vision and hundreds of libraries ready for change, ready to do things differently so that they could do different things.  Today we've got this huge milestone and a growing and actively engaged WorldShare community.  It's just terrific.

Also this week, 40 librarians and staff will meet in North Carolina for a Southeastern WMS Community meeting!  We've been actively involved, but I'm proud to say that the users themselves are really leading this event with the help of OCLC's great new hire, Helene Blowers.  I won't belabor all these self-congratulations.  The quotes in the press release speak for themselves.  The excitement of the community speaks for itself.  These are good times.
