OCLC Research Library Partnership Briefing

27 February 2012
Natural History Museum
Washington, D.C.

For OCLC Research Library Partners Only

Given the general austerity measures being taken by most institutions, we are holding frequent regional update sessions that are typically be scheduled around our staff travel, and other events where we expect at least some of our Partners will be gathering. In this way, we hope that our Partner staff will be able to stretch their travel budgets a little further and still be able to stay informed about current activities and participation opportunities within the Partnership.

Senior Program Officer Merrilee Proffitt facilitated this session for Partner staff from many of our old and established as well as new Partner Institutions in the Washington, D.C. area. The time together was spent looking at some new projects and initiatives that have recently launched (or will be started in the next few months), each of which represent opportunities for Partners to get involved, and in many cases we are looking for Partner input. In addition, a group discussion was held about in which Partner staff asked questions about affiliation, projects and activities.

If you have questions about anything related to the OCLC Research Library Partnership, feel free to get in touch with any of us at any time.

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
