The Class of 1945 Library Has a New Catalog!

This past fall, the library staff began implementing a new library system called Worldshare Management Services (WMS.) WMS is a cloud-based cooperative library management system developed by OCLC, Inc., which is itself a cooperative of libraries worldwide. We went live with WMS over Thanksgiving break and we’re now busy working out the kinks.

While the library staff are adjusting to new circulation, acquisition and metadata systems, the Academy community will notice changes to the library catalog and to their library accounts. You can experience these changes at the Library’s website (

Our catalog can now search books, articles, videos, and more with just one search. There are options to cite, copy a direct link, email or save to a list each item within the search results. As with our old system, you can view and renew the library items you have checked out by clicking on “My Library Account” under “About” on the Library’s webpage. Just use your PEA login.

To learn more about our new discovery system you can try watching a WMS how-to video or, if you would like a one-on-one session with a librarian, just visit the Library’s help desk, text us at 603-707-4054, call 603-777-3313 or email us at !
