Beginning in July, 2014, the Library successfully switched to a new library system, WorldShare Management Services (WMS) by OCLC. The new system allows the Library to better and more efficiently integrate services.
One System for all Materials
- In the new system, all Macalester Library materials can be found using Macalester WorldCat Local
- CLICnet will no longer be used by the Macalester Library
- You can now use your Macalester Login to access services and renew materials.
For more information about the new system, please see our recent announcements.
Feedback - We'd Love to Hear From You!
For questions or comments, please use our WMS Comments Form.

The change of systems will provide a number of benefits for the library, but it will also mean a change in services with our current consortium partners in CLIC. We expect there to be minimal disruption with the changeover and we will be providing updates during the semester to explain the changes as we move closer to going live.

The library has a mobile-optimized website that includes a mobile-friendly WorldCat Local search, list of research databases, a mobile chat option, and news and events.
A link to the library's mobile site can also be found in the Academics section on the College's mobile site.
