RLG Merges with OCLC
From the press release, May 3, 2006:
" Two of the world's largest membership-based information organizations
have agreed to come together. The combined organization will offer an
integrated product and service line, and will give libraries, archives
and museums new leverage in developing services, standards and software
that will help them support research and disseminate knowledge online.
"The RLG Board of Directors and OCLC Board of Trustees have recommended
that the two service and research organizations be combined effective
July 1, 2006. If approved by RLG member institutions, RLG's online
products and services will be integrated with OCLC products and
services, and RLG's program initiatives will be brought forward as a new
division of OCLC Programs and Research."
