The presentation will move through three related areas, offering some loosely interconnected observations about the research library environment. A unifying thread, and the third focus area, will be library collaboration, assessing the benefits and drawbacks of this common model of advancing library interests. In the first part, Lorcan will briefly review the outputs and influence of OCLC Research on library development and discussion. In the second, he will discuss various environmental themes and drivers that flow from this. The emphasis will be on the current environment and possible directions, while occasionally looking back.
