Connect, engage and share

The library landscape is fast-moving and ever-changing, and efficiency is key to navigating the challenges ahead. During this year's OCLC Member Forums, member colleagues described how they are leveraging the power of OCLC products and services and the WorldShare platform to improve workflows and increase library efficiencies. They also heard what's new at OCLC, learned how OCLC's Community Center keeps you informed and engaged year round, and participated in training sessions. Additionally, at three forums, a concurrent program for OCLC Research Library Partners (RLP) took place.
