The OCLC Research Library Partnership

Interest and focus groups

Research Library Partnership (RLP) Interest and Focus Groups offer ongoing opportunities for transnational learning and sharing around topics of specific interest, led by RLP staff. 

Librarians and other stakeholders at RLP partner institutions are invited to participate. 


Metadata Managers Focus Group

The RLP Metadata Managers Focus Group identifies, prioritizes, discusses, and synthesizes shared knowledge about metadata challenges and offers a long-standing and significant way for RLP members to impact metadata practices. Librarians from all RLP partner institutions are invited to participate.
