OCLC Member Forums: Moving forward with purpose

Planning for the 2016 OCLC Member Forums is underway! 

OCLC Member Forums provide regional, one-day gatherings for staff of OCLC member libraries to come together for interactive discussions, training and networking opportunities.

We have begun planning the 2016 Member Forums, and we need your help!  Member libraries make these events possible. Since their inception in 2014, more than 50 OCLC member libraries have hosted Member Forums. Hosting is a great way to:

  • Showcase new or improved facilities
  • Provide a means to demonstrate local library community leadership
  • Provide staff professional development conveniently and economically

Interested in hosting? Please download the PDF on Member Forum host site requirements, or send an email to OCLC Member Relations and we will contact you to discuss details about hosting at your institution.
