OCLC Joins Forces With LIBER to Support the Future of Research Libraries

OCLC shared the following:

OCLC and LIBER announced … the launch of a multi-year engagement program based on LIBER’s 2023-2027 strategy, which presents a vision for the future of research libraries. The series of discussions will collectively examine, explore, and ideate around rapidly evolving technologies, a drive for open content, and the imperative of supporting rights and values.

The 2023-2024 edition of the series, Building for the future: Opportunities and responsibilities for state-of-the-art services, will focus on the second component of LIBER’s strategy: ‘By 2027, research libraries will provide forward-looking, state-of-the-art services for collections, publishing, and curation of information and (meta-)data. These services will be relevant to and tailored for user groups inside and outside academia.’ …

Open to LIBER Members and OCLC Research Library Partnership affiliates—along with the broader research library community—the first discussion series will run from October 2023 through June 2024. The conversations will focus on the opportunities for strategic library collaboration around three topical areas: research data management; data-driven decision making; and AI, machine learning, and data science.

For more information, read the press release.
