OCLC welcomes the Califa Library Group as the newest partner in the OCLC Partnership Program.
As Partners, OCLC and Califa 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 will include improving access to information to maximize the use of OCLC products and services, collaborating on online events and conferences with a focus on new technologies, and opportunities to expose new trends in funding and education.
The Califa Library Group, a not for profit membership cooperative serving libraries and information organizations in California, has been an active participant in OCLC cooperative services such as cataloging with WorldCat and group services. As an OCLC Partner, Califa and OCLC will work together to share information, educate and inform members of both organizations for the benefit of libraries and their users.
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.
