Events

Each year, OCLC Research hosts events where we exchange information, develop projects, and learn from each other and from outside experts. We engage staff from libraries, archives, and museums, and advance the work of the OCLC Research Library Partnership in Works in Progress Webinars to encourage and facilitate remote participation, and feature notable speakers in our Distinguished Seminar Series. Our staff also attend various meetings and conferences where they serve as speakers or panelists—view presentations from these engagements.
