An OCLC Member Update

OCLC Member Forums




Together we can advance farther, faster

OCLC Member Forums: Moving forward with purpose

Join the second annual series of regional U.S. Member Forums to learn from colleagues and contribute to the future of your OCLC cooperative. You'll gain updates and best practices on the OCLC services you use, including Cataloging and Metadata, Discovery and Resource Sharing. You'll also have the opportunity to bring your ideas and discuss your library's needs and opportunities with OCLC staff members.

"Our ideas are valued"

—2014 Member Forum Participant, Montgomery, Alabama


Hosted by member libraries across the U.S., the Forums start at 9:00 am local time and adjourn by 4:00 pm. These day-long meetings are designed to be interactive and informative. Each regional meeting has a flexible agenda to ensure that together we engage in the topics that are most relevant to you. Come prepared to share and learn along with your colleagues so that together, we can make information more accessible and more valuable to our collective communities.

"Thanks for bringing OCLC closer to us!"

—2014 Member Forum Participant, Greensboro, North Carolina
