Next, the OCLC blog

Next is a place where OCLC leaders share their insights and experiences, so that libraries can benefit from the work being done by members of the OCLC cooperative. We cover topics across the entire range of the library profession, with an emphasis on the future of knowledge management, library transformation and how libraries can better fit into the lives of their users.
