Newsflash - Librarian in Residence
Dear fellow librarians,
We have fantastic news! Yesterday, the OCLC committed to becoming a partner to the Librarian in Residence program of the Library of Gouda. OCLC is a global library cooperative that provides shared technology services, original research and community programs for its membership and the library community at large. We are delighted that we can work together.
‘Our Librarian’ will not only receive a ten day program in Gouda in November 2017 but will also be invited, courtesy of OCLC, to the EMEA Regional Council Conference Europe in Edinburgh in February 2018.
We have extended the deadline for your essay or idea about the future until 1st of August 2017. This will give you more time to elaborate on your thoughts, and point out this huge opportunity to other colleagues who might be interested in the combined program.
The selection will take place during the last week of August. The date for the visit in November will be agreed upon after discussion. For the sake of completeness: Here is the link to the previous newsletter.
We are very much looking forward to hearing from you.
With the best of luck, yours sincerely,
About our new partner OCLC
OCLC is a global library cooperative that provides shared technology services, original research and community programs for its membership and the library community at large. We are librarians, technologists, researchers, pioneers, leaders and learners. With thousands of library members in more than 100 countries, we come together as OCLC to make information more accessible and more useful.
Whether we’re supporting advancements on the leading edge of science or helping children build a strong learning foundation, shared knowledge is the common thread. People can find the answers they need to solve important problems in their lives, in their communities and in the world. Together we make breakthroughs possible. Both big and small.
Because what is known must be shared.
