OCLC Research is dedicated exclusively to examining the challenges and issues currently facing libraries as well as looking at new and emerging areas of librarianship. In this OCLC Research Update, Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Director of Library Trends and User Research, provides overviews of several active projects and explores new (or new again) areas for libraries including discovery and access, open access/open content, research information management, research data management, information literacy, and how libraries are responding to the opioid crisis in their communities. Additionally, Karen Smith-Yoshimura will present emerging trends in linked data that were revealed in a recent survey, and Betha Gutsche will share the inspirational transformations that small public libraries made to their libraries as part of an IMLS grant-funded project now beginning a second round. We’ll also take your questions on these and other areas that OCLC Research is working on.
