I don’t write about RLG (where I currently work and have worked for almost 27 years) all that often–for a variety of reasons.
There are exceptions. This is one of them.
We heard about this about 150 minutes ago as I write.
“This,” for those who don’t bother to click through, is the announcement that RLG and OCLC plan to merge.
And that, other than the title of this post, is all I can say at this point–not because I have any secret decoder ring, but because I don’t. Don’t bother to ask: I am devoid of insider information.
