I hope you're planning to join us for "Best of Show 2013," OCLC's online rebroadcast of some of the best sessions of the year to date. You'll be able to choose from a wide menu of "Collective Insights" programs and OCLC product and service updates. I'll be the opening speaker, presenting an OCLC overview and update.
The program launches this coming Wednesday, July 31, at 12:00 noon Eastern US time (16.00 UTC), and continues through Thursday, August 1. You can participate live or, if it's more convenient, you can request access the recordings. And it's all free of charge! To register, or for more information, click here.
I join George in recommending the Best of Show programs. I'm registered because this package of programs provides a way to catch up on some of the "Collective Insights" sessions that I missed and to learn more about various OCLC products and services for which I now have only a glancing familiarity. The sessions are also a great way to extend the library's professional development budget--I'm a bargain shopper, and you just can't beat free!
