The OCLC Members Council: A Communication and Governance Forum for the Global Library Collaborative

A November 10, 2004, press release from OCLC described the October 2004 Members Council meeting.

The OCLC Members Council met October 24-26, 2004, in Dublin, Ohio, where delegates discussed the library implications of massively multiplayer online games, e-learning, and extending services to more libraries in more countries worldwide as part of its overall theme of “Moving Libraries Beyond Their Comfort Zones.” It was the first of three meetings for the 2004/2005 Members Council that would consider questions and findings from the OCLC Environmental Scan: Pattern Recognition, a report produced for the OCLC worldwide membership to examine significant issues and trends impacting OCLC, libraries, museums, archives and other allied organizations, now and in the future.
