OCLC Metadata link roundup

There has been a lot of chatter round the library community about the new OCLC policies for sharing metadata. I don't have much to add to the discussion but just wanted to pull together a couple of good pieces that I've seen on the subject.

After Delay, OCLC Lays Out New Policy for Records Use and Transfer (Library Journal)
OCLC Updating Records Use Guidelines; Confusion Over Effective Date
(Library Journal)

Maelstrom Over Metadata (Inside Higher Ed) - particularly good for non-librarians who need a primer on what OCLC does
