OCLC- Global Information Sharing at its best

My visit to OCLC was very educational and informative.  It was amazing to be at the hub of information sharing and to see the home of WorldCAT.  This was a very inspiring visit. Once you have entered the building you are in another world.  It was captivating to see the level of work that goes on behind the scene at OCLC.

The super computers involved in this process and the monitoring and management that comes into making this operation run like a well oiled machine.  It was fascinating to see the world map and how they are able to track activity around the world as it relates to cyber attacks etc. that may have the potential to attack their system.
