Works in Progress: an OCLC Research Occasional Webinar Series

Exclusively for OCLC Research Library Partners

What are we working on? What are you working on? OCLC Research Library Partners are invited to participate in this occasional webinar series to talk about work happening in OCLC Research – we'd like to present our work informally and get feedback from you, our Partners. We'd also like this to be a venue for Partner institutions. What are you working on that everyone should know about? What input would help you move forward? Attend these webinars to let us know!
