Attend "Research in Context" with Lorcan Dempsey and Chrystie Hill online or in person Friday, 30 January

#oclcalamw #alamw15

Attend the OCLC Symposium: Research in Context virtually or in person from 1-4 p.m. Central Time on Friday, 30 January at ALA Midwinter in Chicago, McCormick Place West, Room W-196a to learn how research can help your library achieve greater impact and plan with confidence.

The program will feature Lorcan Dempsey, Vice President, OCLC Research and Chief Strategist, and Chrystie Hill, Director, OCLC Community Relations, who will discuss how research activities can move beyond insights into action. Research often starts by recognizing and mapping changes in the environment. But knowing where we are and how we got here is only half of the equation. For research to be valuable, it must also be actionable.

This event will open with an update on recent Americas Regional Council and Global Council activities. The OCLC Symposium: Research in Context will follow immediately. Roundtable discussion will follow, both live and online, about the ways in which research can help your library achieve greater impact and plan with confidence.

Register to attend this and other OCLC sessions at ALA Midwinter 2015, including the OCLC Research Update on Monday, 2 February from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the McCormick Place Convention Center, Room W183c.
