OCLC Asia Pacific Regional Council

The OCLC Asia Pacific Regional Council represents member libraries from the territory west of Hawaii, ranging from China, Korea and Japan in the north to Australia and New Zealand in the south, and Pakistan to the west.

The Asia Pacific Council elects member librarians to the Asia Pacific Executive Committee, five of whom also serve as Member Delegates to the Global Council.

Asia Pacific Council meetings are open to all members and provide a forum to discuss issues that are important to its members and to advise OCLC about its products, services, policies and operating direction through the Global Council.
