As OCLC Nears 50, It Focuses on the Future
by Nancy K. Herther
On Oct. 1, 2015, OCLC ceased publication of catalog cards for libraries in the U.S. and across the globe. Although this milestone went relatively unheralded, it represented the end of an era in library systems management and user access. Libraries took a major step forward when OCLC introduced the first online shared cataloging system in 1971, and this is just one contribution that will be celebrated when the organization marks 50 years of service to the library profession in 2017.
