    May 2022 OCLC Virtual AskQC Office Hours Invitation


    Perhaps the often overlooked WorldCat Registry has not yet registered on your consciousness.  It may surprise you how crucial the quality of its institutional metadata can be to the smooth functioning of so many other OCLC services.  Register for the May 2022 Virtual AskQC Office Hours to learn more about it, how it powers other OCLC services, and how you can update your institution's metadata within the Registry. 


    As has become standard practice, "The WorldCat Registry and data quality" will be presented twice to accommodate a wide swath of time zones:  First on Tuesday, May 10 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, and a second time on Thursday, May 19 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  Please note that each of these times is Eastern Time in the United States.  Please adjust for your own time zone.


    Following each presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the VAOH topic or about any other WorldCat quality matter that comes to mind.


    Topic and registration information is available for these two May 2022 VAOH presentations and also for the June 2022 Office Hours.  On the Previous AskQC Office Hours page, you may also tap into the recordings, slides, and Q&A from past VAOH presentations.  If you register, you will receive an email reminder before your chosen session along with a link to the WebEx event.  All Virtual AskQC Office Hours are available from OCLC at no charge.


    Everyone is welcome.


    Please excuse any duplication of this message.
