Be a “community catalyst” with these future-focused conference resources

At this year’s OCLC Library Futures Conference, more than 200 community leaders, speakers, and OCLC staff gathered in Singapore to share their learnings, insights, and innovations to help librarians lead their communities into the future. Presentations focused both on inspiring our attendees and providing hands-on ideas for programs and services that can transform the lives of the people and communities that libraries support. What role should the library of tomorrow play in your community? We invite you to view the conference insights below and share them with your staff and colleagues.


The impact of the OCLC cooperative is never more evident than at our membership events. So many thought-leaders from so many types of libraries come together to discuss challenges and solutions.
