OCLC Americas Member Meeting and Symposium at ALA Annual

OCLC member-leaders and staff participated in a Regional Council business meeting and a keynote address in our "Collective Insight-Driven by Shared Data" series. This session focused on the opportunity to examine shared data in new ways that help us make better decisions, learn about the information ecosystem and impact how we live. Participants explored how libraries play a compelling role in helping our communities make sense of that information in useful and innovative ways.
