I am pleased to announce that OCLC Research is offering another webinar that may be of interest on, EAC tools and "remixing" archival metadata coming up THIS THURSDAY, January 9th. This webinar is free and available to all. We also have made the recording of the December 5th Thresholds for Discovery Webinar available online. Please feel free to share this information broadly!

All the best for a happy, healthy, New Year!
