How do you build an even smarter library? Conference programming will balance dialogue around our shared futures with discussion around practical “get-started-now” takeaways. Programming will focus on the areas most topical to a “smart” approach, including personalising the customer experience, leveraging ever-increasing volumes of data, reinforcing professional values and ensuring ongoing innovation.
The agenda is being developed to include multiple learning and sharing opportunities, including:
In addition to a full two-day schedule, we are also running two consecutive events on Thursday 22 February—the OCLC Workshop and the WMS Community Event. Both are taking place at the Principal Hotel and will provide you with the opportunity to find out more about OCLC and our products, whilst also giving you the opportunity to share ideas and network.
There is a downloadable version of the programme available to view (PDF).
We have organised a special one-day meeting, the third annual OCLC Workshop, to follow directly after the EMEA Regional Council on Thursday, 22 February.
For the first time in EMEA, we are holding a WMS Community Meeting, on Thursday 22 February, following the EMEA Regional Council Meeting.
At this one-day event, WMS users will have an opportunity to share experiences, learn from each other and meet OCLC staff. For more information about the event and to register, please take a look at the events calendar.
The EMEA WMS community is growing steadily. Come to Edinburgh, meet your peers, become a part of it!
