2008 SSP Librarian Focus Group

February 5, 2008, The American Geophysical Union (AGU), Washington, DC

Learn from librarians about how information delivery and access works in their various institutions. They’ll discuss a wide range of issues. From social networking and changing user expectations, to discoverability and access to content, copyright and usage analysis, and perpetual access and preservation. Collect current information to inform your orgainization’s planning and tactics by learning about these concerns and more from “the source” during a moderated exchange of information and viewpoints. You’ll also have a chance to contribute your questions and participate in the discussion in this full-day member’s only program.
