Content versus Container: How Online Delivery is Changing the Process of Acquiring and Managing Content

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Eastern Time

Scholarly information has never been more accessible. In addition to traditional print, there are numerous online platforms, ILL programs, and even piracy websites that all offer researchers more access to knowledge than ever before. Moreover, end users have more choices about how to search for and receive information-rather than whole works or individual journals, one can choose a chapter, an article, a section, or even a page to buy, download, or use. How does this piecemeal approach affect scholarly publishing? In this webinar we take a fresh look at the ways that packaging and use-trends affect how publishers and librarians acquire and manage knowledge.
