Join us in Jacksonville for this premier resource sharing event.

In the spirit of “Bridging Communities,” OCLC invites all ILL professionals to Jacksonville, Florida, to share the latest in resource sharing, including innovative approaches to patron service and interlibrary loan workflows.

By sharing knowledge, libraries build bridges between people, communities, and each other. The sharing of ideas, collections, and technology creates connections inside and outside the library community. This is especially true for interlibrary loan. Together, we have the opportunity to connect staff, collections, and workflows with best-in-class resource sharing tools to bring the broadest set of resources to our users.

At this year’s conference, you’ll find ways to improve operational efficiency, save time, and better connect end users to the information they need. It’s a unique opportunity to interact with a very knowledgeable community of ILL professionals.

Katie Birch, Executive Director, Resource Sharing

Welcome

I invite you to join us at the 2018 OCLC Resource Sharing Conference: Bridging Communities. My team and I are excited to welcome you to a new location that enables us to expand the conference! We have increased capacity this year and look forward to bringing together more libraries across the ILLiad, Tipasa, WorldShare Interlibrary Loan, WorldCat Navigator, VDX, Relais ILL, and Relais D2D communities. We’ll share our knowledge in the areas of software, services, processes, and professional development, and together we’ll bridge these communities and more. We expect a great variety of presentations this year from all types of libraries using all types of services. I look forward to seeing you there.
