Pros: Very easy to use the online catalog to look up holdings of titles at other libraries. The interlibrary loan function is very useful in requesting hard copy (books, journal articles) and non-print materials for customers.

Cons: WorldShare is updated on a semi-regular basis, so it can be difficult to keep up with the changes.

Overall: I used WorldShare extensively when I was at a medical research library, for close to 5 years. We received a lot of requests from the researchers for materials not owned by our library, so WorldShare was very handy and useful in filling many requests.
