Please join us on June 17 at the Oviatt Library in the Jack & Florence Ferman Presentation Room for a two-part meeting. We’ll start with an OCLC Member Forum where we will come together to share ideas, pose questions and discuss experiences around your OCLC cooperative’s activities and services. Spend the morning with OCLC staff and member colleagues as we talk about cataloging, resource sharing and discovery within the cooperative.

After lunch (provided by OCLC), we’ll join the Southern California Technical Processes Group for a program on Linked Data, featuring a keynote talk, “It’s Not the Record, It’s the Linkage,” from Roy Tennant of OCLC Research.
