Executive Director, Research Library Partnership
Rachel Frick directs OCLC's work and engagement with the Research Library Partnership, a venue for research libraries to undertake significant, innovative, collective action to benefit libraries, scholars and researchers everywhere.
Rachel has nearly 20 years of broad-based library experience, most recently with Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) where she was the Director of Business Development. In this position, she worked on DPLA’s sustainability plan, forged new relationships and developed strategic partnerships in order to build DPLA’s visibility and impact, such as the Open eBooks program. Prior to DPLA, Rachel served as the Digital Library Federation (DLF) Program Director at the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) for four years. In her capacity as DLF Director, she was instrumental in building a large and diverse community of practitioners, working to advance research, teaching and learning through the application of digital library research, technology and services. She also held senior positions at the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the University of Richmond, among other roles.
