OCLC pushes back policy to fall, 2009

Fellow OpenLibrarian, Karen Coyle reports:

OCLC has just announced that it is pushing back the date on which the new record use and transfer policy will take effect. The actual new date isn’t known, but the announcement says:

In order to allow sufficient time for feedback and discussion, implementation of the Policy will be delayed until the third quarter of the 2009 calendar year.

OCLC will form a “review board” to solicit info from members and others, and to advise the OCLC board of trustees about the policy. Jennifer Younger will chair this committee.
