On 13-Jan-2009, OCLC announced a [http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/catalog/policy/board/default.htm Review Board of Shared Data Creation and Stewardship] with a charge to: consult with librarians and member representatives as appropriate; review reports, letters and comments including blog and listserv messages from the global library community regarding the revised Policy; and recommend principles of shared data creation and changes in the Policy for Use and Transfer of WorldCat Records that will preserve the community around WorldCat infrastructure and services, and strengthen libraries. The Review Board submitted its [http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/catalog/FinalReport_ReviewBoard.pdf final report] to OCLC on 22-Jun-2009 recommending that the proposed policy be withdrawn and a Record Use Policy Development Task Force be formed along with a "formal, transparent and well-managed process" to create a new policy. In a [http://www.oclc.org/news/releases/200939.htm news release] posted on 26-Jun-2009, OCLC accepted these recommendations.
