OCLC Research Annual Highlights: Progress in Support of the RLG Partnership, July 2008-June 2009 Now Available

 
This report summarizes the activities, projects, publications, meetings and events produced over the last year in support of the RLG Partnership.

OCLC Research and staff from RLG partner institutions have made real progress over the last year in the areas of research information management, mobilizing unique materials, metadata support and management, and system-wide organization. This work has moved us closer to our goal of systemic change in the current operating processes of research information institutions and the conception of new services that will revitalize our value proposition to the academy and to our communities.

Staff who participated in RLG Partnership working groups are listed in the latter part of the report. Their significant support and participation in these efforts is greatly appreciated.
