How do you build an even smarter library? Conference programming will balance dialogue around our shared futures with discussion around practical “get-started-now” takeaways. Programming will focus on the areas most topical to a “smart” approach, including personalising the customer experience, leveraging ever-increasing volumes of data, reinforcing professional values and ensuring ongoing innovation.
The agenda is being developed to include multiple learning and sharing opportunities, including:
In addition to a full two-day schedule, we are also running two consecutive events on Thursday 22 February—the OCLC Product Day and the WMS Community Event. Both are taking place at the Principal Hotel and will provide you with the opportunity to find out more about OCLC and our products, whilst also giving you the opportunity to share ideas and network.
We have organised a special one-day meeting, the third annual OCLC Product Day, to follow directly after the EMEA Regional Council on Thursday, 22 February. The meeting will be an ideal opportunity to get a more detailed view of services like WorldShare® Management Services, with demonstrations and discussion from key product personnel.
This meeting will take place at Principal Hotel (19–21 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PB). The programme will be in English and if you are interested in attending the OCLC Product Day, please mention it on your registration form, as places are limited.
For more information about the agenda of this special one-day meeting, check back here in coming months or get updates on Twitter at #OCLCEMEARC18.
For the first time in EMEA, we are holding a WMS Community Event following the EMEA Regional Council Meeting. At this one-day event for WMS users, you will find out more about WMS and it will allow for users and OCLC staff to share insights and learnings.
This event is taking place at the Principal Hotel, George Street on Thursday 22 February. For more information about the event, please take a look at the events calendar.
