RLG Programs seeks to identify and assist necessary system-wide change efforts for research libraries across the world, in order to create effective new services and to maximize resource efficiencies. There are exciting opportunities in this endeavor which can be realized only with the strong participation of our European Partners. On 5-6 November in Paris, we met to discuss how RLG Programs can take up this multi-year program of transformative work and best represent our European Partnership. The interest, commitment and investment of our partners helps to create and sustain a community of research libraries and memory organizations successfully focused on our most pressing collective challenges.

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967.
