Our Library had moved to a new library management system known as WorldShare Management Services also called as WorldCat or WMS. It is a cloud-based library services platform that provides all the applications needed to manage different library services including discovery service for users, online requests or resource sharing, library catalog, database management and other activities.


  • Use WorldCat to search for books – print or electronic, journal titles, articles and more. Using Advanced Search option will allow you to find exactly what you are searching for.
  • Search Course Reserve for specific core readings related to your module.
  • Use Library Links to perform specific search types e.g. journal search, databases links, e-books.
  • Search Bspace to access BUiD Theses and Dissertations electronically.
  • List of Subject Guide to E-resources can be accessed from Blackboard on your Library module.
  • Browse database collection in WorldCat to access specific databases.
  • NOTE: Use your Blackboard login details to access electronic resources remotely.
