Join OCLC in Phoenix for the Americas Regional Council Conference

We’re excited to announce the dates and location for the 2019 OCLC Americas Regional Council Conference. The event will be held on 2–3 October in Phoenix, Arizona, at Sheraton Grand Phoenix hotel.

In addition to the main conference agenda, we will host two preconference meetings on Tuesday, 1 October 2019.

RLP Preconference:
The OCLC Research Library Partnership invites institutional leaders from national and university libraries to join us for a preconference session where we will share findings of recent OCLC research and partner activities. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss today’s greatest library challenges with stakeholders within and beyond the library community. RLP members can attend the preconference at no cost.

"Design Thinking" Preconference: The “Design Thinking” preconference offering for public libraries will take place on October 1 and be led by representatives from the University of Washington’s iSchool and OCLC’s WebJunction.

Early bird registration for ARC19 is now open. Also, follow OCLC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we continue to share more details about #OCLCARC19.
