Nigel Long

Library Services Consultant
Calgary, Alberta
I joined OCLC in 2003 to promote new and existing OCLC services to libraries in western Canada. Prior to joining OCLC, I worked in a variety of libraries in Great Britain and Canada as a public library manager and as a research librarian in the areas of criminal justice and the oil and gas industry. I served as an account manager with a leading provider of library subscription services in western Canada and developed my own business. l hold an undergraduate honours degree in library science and an MBA, both from the University of Wales in Aberystwyth. Outside work I enjoy time with my wife and fourteen year old daughter and being in the Rockies hiking or skiing, going for a run or working in our yard.
OCLC solutions for Canada's libraries include WorldShare Management Services (WMS). WMS provides cloud-based library management and discovery applications in an integrated suite. WMS offers librarians a cost-effective way to manage workflows efficiently, and improves access to library collections and services with an integrated suite of cloud-based library management applications, all saving time and money and improve service to users. With WorldCat Discovery, library users can discover more than 2 billion electronic, digital and physical resources through a single search. T Through membership, libraries contribute to the cooperative and benefit from the services, research, and advocacy and advancement programs.
