Announcing The 7th Annual SSP Librarian Focus Group “A Forum for Publishers and Librarians”
Tuesday, February 1, 2011 , 9:00 AM- 4:00 PM, Washington DC
The Society for Scholarly Publishing’s ever popular “Librarian Focus Group” returns in 2011 with a panel of leading
librarians from a range of institutions primed and ready to answer the questions publishers and vendors have for
them. The digital future and continued economic turmoil will be at the forefront of discussion, but a range of other
topics will also be covered, such as trends in pricing and licensing, the future of authentication, the challenges
of electronic resource preservation, the state of “open access,” and the growing interest in campus publishing.
In a proven formula, six librarians will take questions from moderators and participants on a range of themes during
a full day of discussions. The panelists have been chosen for their wide ranging knowledge, and there will be
informal as well as formal opportunities for discussion.
Space is limited and this program has historically been a sell-out, so don’t delay in securing your seat. The event
takes place at the American Geophysical Union in Washington D.C. on the day before the Association of American
Publishers’ PSP 2011 Annual Conference begins.
Join us Tuesday, February 1, 2011, 9:00 AM- 4:00 PM at the American Geophysical Union , 2000 Florida Avenue N.W., Washington, DC 20009-1277
