    OCLC Review Board of Shared Data Creation and Stewardship survey

The Review Board on Principles of Shared Data Creation and Stewardship 
seeks comments from the global library community regarding the proposed 
Policy for Use and Transfer of WorldCat Records. The primary goal of

about a proposed OCLC policy, Policy for Use and Transfer of WorldCat® 

The Review Board will consider the results of this survey in its 
recommendations to OCLC.

Please review the existing guidelines and proposed policy if you have 
not already done so:

The OCLC Review Board is an independent committee convened by the OCLC 
Board of Trustees and the OCLC Members Council. If you wish to find out
