In 2018 the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and OCLC Research partnered to conduct a survey of research libraries in Canada. The survey, taken by 89% of CARL library directors, is the first of its kind to capture intelligence regarding trends, capacities, priorities and collaborations within the Canadian research library community. This briefing will focus on findings from this survey, as well as comparative data from complementary surveys conducted by OCLC Research in partnership with the Council of Australian University Libraries (CAUL) and Research Libraries UK (RLUK). Understanding key similarities and differences in regional priorities provides powerful suggestion as to where the global research library community might look for leadership and partnerships. We will also share how the survey is informing work being planned and carried out by OCLC Research and CARL.
