As we’ve said many times over many years we’re admirers of the work (research reports, presentations, and tools) that OCLC Research produces.
Today, OCLC Research released their 2012 Activity Report that shares highlights of their work.
This report provides highlights of our work in 2012 and early 2013 organized into three areas:
- Shared community R&D
- Advanced development and consultation within the OCLC enterprise, and
- Member and Partner engagement
- It also provides an overview of the OCLC Research mission, a flavor of important themes in our work agenda, and examples of our outputs, including prototype systems or services, published reports, webinars, podcasts, videos and meetings.
- The report presents a story of achievement and contribution and represents the significant value that OCLC Research provides to the OCLC enterprise, OCLC members and the larger community.
One final note.
If you who find charts useful (in this case we’ll call them infographics) this report offers many of them. All of the reports and presentations by members of the OCLC Research team that are listed in the report have direct links to access the full text.
