The Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) was awarded a grant in February from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to further develop standards for museum data exchange. The OCLC, a library service and research organization, received a $145,000 grant to fund projects involving the OCLC Programs and Research and seven RLG Programs. The Mellon grant will be used to fund OCLC Programs and Research projects to build information architecture and model behaviors that museums can use to routinely exchange data. To facilitate the OCLC's research cataloging, WorldCat, a global network of library content created by OCLC and its member libraries, is being used. The Mellon Foundation's grant-making philosophy is to build, strengthen, and sustain institutions and their core capacities, rather than be a source for narrowly defined projects. The Mellon Foundation is a nonprofit corporation that provides library management and Web services to 60,000 libraries in 112 countries and territories.
