Review Board Final Report Released; OCLC Withdraws Proposed Policy on Use and Transfer of WorldCat Records

From the OCLC News Release:

The Review Board on Principles of Shared Data Creation and Stewardship, convened jointly by the OCLC Board of Trustees and Members Council to represent the membership and inform OCLC on matters concerning shared data, has issued its final report [Our Emphasis] recommending that the proposed Policy on Use and Transfer of WorldCat Records be withdrawn and a new policy drafted.

In May, Jennifer Younger, Review Board Chair, and Edward H. Arnold Director of Hesburgh Libraries, University of Notre Dame, presented a report to OCLC Members Council recommending that the proposed policy be formally withdrawn and a new policy should be drafted. "We affirm that a policy is needed, but not this policy," said Dr. Younger.

The dialogue and debate surrounding OCLC's record use policy have demonstrated some of the great strengths of the OCLC cooperative—that we are indeed a membership organization, that our members are vocal, and that we listen to the membership," said Jay Jordan, OCLC President and CEO. "Soon we will announce a new initiative to develop a record use policy that reflects both the rights of individual libraries and the needs of the cooperative to sustain and grow WorldCat for future generations.
