Together, anything is possible

Sixty years ago, there was no such thing as collaborative cataloging. Forty years ago, there was no such thing as online reference. Twenty years ago, there was no such thing as a cloud-based ILS. Five years ago, AI wasn’t helping to improve the quality of millions of WorldCat® records or optimizing lender strings to create the world’s fastest ILL network. Working together during the past six decades, we’ve transformed librarianship and increased the impact that libraries have on their communities. And we’re just getting started!

Please join us to discuss the next great transformations. From linked data to AI to collection analytics OCLC continues to innovate by collaborating with and for libraries. Stop by booth #1349 during exhibit hours for a quick conversation and a refreshing beverage.
