RLG Partnership Roundtable at VRA/ARLIS

Friday, 25 March 2011
Duluth Room, Minneapolis Hilton


This annual Roundtable at VRA + ARLIS/NA 2011 is an opportunity for staff at RLG Partnership institutions to hear what OCLC Research has done, is planning to do, is grappling with, and wants to collaborate on with attendees. OCLC Research has staked out the most pressing issues facing the library community in the areas of renovating descriptive practice, managing the collective collection, new modes of scholarship and modeling new service infrastructures, and attendees will hear about the latest development in areas of particular impact to art libraries. While RLG Partners determine the agenda through a survey, all ARLIS conference goers are welcome to attend.
