Research Libraries Group, Inc. (Dublin, OH)

About RLG Programs: "RLG Programs is comprised of nearly 150 research libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural memory institutions. Our global partnership has remarkable collections for research, teaching and learning. Originally founded in 1974 by The New York Public Library and Columbia, Harvard, and Yale universities, RLG Programs combined with OCLC in July 2006. The new organization will be the leading venue for applied research, community building and prototyping of systems and services that support research and learning."

as fan of WorldCat I had never heard of RLG so I had to google to resolve the acronym RESEARCH LIBRARIES GROUP
