OCLC Members Council Holds Its First Virtual Meeting

From the News Release:

OCLC Members Council conducted its first-ever virtual meeting February 911 to discuss opportunities and challenges confronting the global information community, to learn more about collaborative services, and to continue the transition to a Global Council and Regional Councils.

Continuing its governance transition, Members Council voted to ratify the Global Council Bylaws as approved by the OCLC Board of Trustees, and also approved new Membership and Governance Protocols and referred them to the Board with the recommendation that the Board approve them.

In his report to Members Council, Larry Alford, Chair, OCLC Board of Trustees, and Dean of University Libraries, Temple University, stated: "These are exciting times for OCLC as we move forward in our governance plan, and I think this meeting will demonstrate the power of technology to connect OCLC members, to connect libraries and librarians and other cultural heritage institutions from around the world to foster cooperation and collaboration."
