WKU joins global library cooperative

WKU Libraries announces its affiliation with Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) Research Library Partnership.

The OCLC Research Library Partnership is an influential global collaborative of research libraries, museums and archives that work with a sophisticated technical capacity, highly skilled on-staff experts and external consultants to achieve significant, innovative and collective action for the benefit of scholars and researchers everywhere.

WKU Libraries will join an elite group of universities within the partnership including Columbia, Duke, Emory, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton, Rutgers, Johns Hopkins, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Yale and many others.

According to Connie Foster, Interim Dean for WKU Libraries, the partnership is supported by a large team of experts including information scientists, librarians, archivists, web developers, programmers and analysts. “Through this new alliance, we will have leading-edge, peer-based opportunities to participate in transnational research collaboratives, to access multifaceted technology, and to explore challenges facing research libraries across the globe,” Foster said.
