Terry Brandsma of the ERIT Department was recently elected to serve a two-year term (2014-2016) as one of the 4 co-chairs of the WMS Community Leadership Team. While Terry’s work in this area is mostly transparent to those who use the library’s catalog, OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services (WMS) manages the ordering, processing, and circulation of library materials, along with holds, book renewals, print reserves, and similar user services. The WMS Community Leadership Team plans and hosts online meetings for the community of WMS users, and serves as the primary conduit for the community to provide feedback and suggestions to OCLC. Terry also recently presented at (and helped plan) the "2014 WMS Southeast Users Group Meeting", held at Brenau University, Gainesville, GA, on June 2-3, 2014.
