6 thoughts on “OCLC kerfuffle, summarized in a way I agree with

  1. So, I’m a little slow and I’m only halfway through my first cup of coffee, but I can’t find a summary of this situation that I can understand. I’ve looked through -wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/OCLC_Policy_Change- and I can’t find a summary that gets me riled up about this like it seems that I need to be … enough to get me to action. I’m probably not the only one.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

  2. Thanks for pointing to Stephano’s post. it does make sense of the whole mess and I will use it when other ask…
    funny though, when reading:
    “OCLC has slowly morphed from a welcomed institution tasked to help libraries reduce coordination costs to an annoying institution tasked to protect its existence and its monopoly, even at the cost of alienating its own membership.”
    I couldn’t help but be reminded of some libraries doing just that to their people too.
