OCLC Research Library Partnership Announces Upcoming Works in Progress Webinars

Members of the OCLC Research Library Partnership (RLP) can participate in live webinars featuring research currently in progress at OCLC Research and in partner libraries around the world. While everyone can watch the recordings, being able to participate in the live webinars is a significant benefit of membership in the RLP. Learn more about the RLP and how your institution can join.

The RLP has just announced the upcoming slate of Works in Progress Webinars, which span areas including open access, special collections, unique collections, linked data, and research information management.

While not the same as the full benefit of joining the webinars live and being able to ask questions and participate, all webinars are recorded and available to anyone on demand after the event.

The first webinar, on 23 August, features William Nixon, Assistant Director of Digital Strategy at the University of Glasgow, who will discuss Sustaining (and Delivering) “Open” at the University of Glasgow through Enlighten.

Find out about The OCLC RLP Special Collections and Archives Work Agenda in the 5 September webinar, which will include a conversation with OCLC Research Library Partnership (RLP) Program Officer Chela Scott Weber about future work in this area. This webinar will also be held at a time specially scheduled for those in Australian time zones.

Later in September, RLP Executive Director Rachel L. Frick will provide an OCLC Research Library Partnership Update from the Executive Director in two sessions, one especially for Australian time zones. This is an opportunity to get an RLP program overview, find out about our programs and events, and find out how the RLP is refining its focus, all in an office hours format.

On 27 September, in the webinar Making the Most of Unique Collections: Developing New Roles and Approaches at LSE, Martin Reid and Anna Towlson, of the London School of Economics and Political Science, explain their approach to developing an integrated approach toward its collections, creating new roles to unify and lead the development and exploitation of unique and distinctive material across its collections on a thematic basis.

Take a look at these additional webinars offered October through March, and stay tuned as more Works in Progress webinars are announced.
