Please join your colleagues for OCLC events at the 84th IFLA World Library and Information Congress, 24 - 30 August 2018.

This event has passed.

The 2018 IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, offers a broad array of presentations, meetings and other events that help strengthen the worldwide library community. OCLC is pleased to contribute to this year’s Congress, and to support the event as a Platinum Sponsor. We invite all IFLA WLIC attendees to join our symposium program:

OCLC Industry Symposium: The power and potential of international library cooperation
Saturday, 25 August, 13.45 – 15.45
Conference Hall 3 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center

Lorcan Dempsey, Vice President, Membership and Research, Chief Strategist, OCLC
Eric van LubeekVice President, Managing Director, OCLC EMEA and APAC
Axel KaschteProduct Strategy Director, OCLC EMEA

Now, more than ever, libraries around the world are able to collaborate across national borders while simultaneously satisfying regional and local requirements. What is the full potential of international library cooperation? At the OCLC Industry Symposium, you’ll learn about original research that explores the shared challenges, opportunities, and trends in this area. We’ll discuss how technologies and resources like WorldCat can power collaboration across regional and global ecosystems, generating greater network efficiencies and providing a more complete view of the world’s collected knowledge. And, we’ll share some case studies and examples of OCLC’s latest innovations.
