OCLC Industry Symposium: Working with a Metadata Mindset at IFLA WLIC 2022

Please join OCLC senior leaders at IFLA WLIC 2022, for the OCLC Industry Symposium, “Working with a Metadata Mindset.” Learn how OCLC's metadata mindset means we have first-hand knowledge and industry-leading expertise in the ways metadata can power better results for libraries.

Please join OCLC senior leaders at IFLA WLIC 2022, for the OCLC Industry Symposium, “Working with a Metadata Mindset,” on 26 July at 14:45. 

As stewards of the world’s largest collection of library information, OCLC’s metadata mindset means we have first-hand knowledge and industry-leading expertise in the ways metadata can power better results for libraries. In this symposium, OCLC President and CEO Skip Prichard will share opening remarks on OCLC priorities and progress on major library initiatives for the coming year.  

Lorcan Dempsey, retired Chief Strategist, will discuss the work of OCLC Research to use the global bibliographic and WorldCat holdings data to explore national contributions to the published record, drawing on insights from Ireland and its presence. 

Mary Sauer-Games, Vice President, Global Product Management, will talk about the value of the network. OCLC has built infrastructure to connect and enrich a growing network of libraries to empower collaboration, learning, and innovation at scale. This thriving network represents the collective data, resources, and expertise of thousands of libraries, and we will look at some of the ways the network is delivering impact and value to those who participate.

Finally, Axel Kaschte, Director, Product Strategy EMEA, will update us on WorldCat Entities, a new linked data infrastructure that represents a landmark for libraries seeking to express library collections in ways that can be understood across the web.
