OCLC welcomes the Connecticut Library Consortium as a new partner in the OCLC Partnership Program.
The Connecticut Library Consortium (CLC) is a statewide membership collaborative that serves all types of Connecticut libraries by initiating and facilitating cost-effective services, and creating and supporting educational and professional development.
As Partners, OCLC and CLC will collaborate on programs and activities to enhance services and expand educational opportunities to members of both organizations. This new partnership enables both organizations to explore new ways to anticipate and address the needs of shared members. Initiatives include improving access to information, ensuring that OCLC services are being used to their full potential, collaborating on online events and conferences with a focus on new technologies, and maximizing opportunities to expose new trends in funding and education.
The OCLC Partnership Program offers value-added services to OCLC member institutions through the development of strategic partnerships with library consortia, groups, networks and other membership organizations. OCLC and its Partners work together to strengthen member relationships and develop programs and services to serve the needs of shared members. For more information about the OCLC Partnership Program, or to learn more about becoming an OCLC Partner to deliver new service options or training to members, contact OCLC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
