The value of membership

A key benefit of membership is the opportunity to reflect your local and regional views on issues facing libraries today. Member libraries have a voice through these elected representatives and are encouraged to actively participate and contribute in member activities including elections, regional meetings, member forums, advisory groups and user communities. We have greater impact when we collaborate as OCLC. When we come together as a network, we can address shared opportunities and challenges at scale. Together we make breakthroughs possible.
