2014 SSP 36th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 3D: Chat with a Librarian
Academic libraries and librarians are major stakeholders in the evolution of scholarly publishing, finding themselves at the intersection of authors rights, open access, new models of scholarly discourse, and preservation, while managing ever-tighter budgets and reasserting their relevance in the digital age. We will bring together librarians from a diverse group of academic libraries who will describe how their roles are changing, what they see as the challenges ahead, and how they plan to meet the challenges. Through roundtable conversations with the panelists the audience will come away with a clearer understanding and a better appreciation of whats at stake for libraries as scholarly publishing evolves.
