Society for Scholarly Publishing-Annual Meeting

SSP Annual Meeting - June 6-8, 2007

Librarians and students are invited to register for the SSP 
Annual Meeting. SSP is the Society for Scholarly Publishing and 
librarian viewpoints and input are welcomed. Librarians enjoy a 
deep discount, almost half the SSP member rate ($250 instead of 
$495). Save $50 by registering by May 11.

The SSP 29th Annual Meeting will be held June 6-8, at the Palace 
Hotel in San Francisco. This year's program "Imagining the 
Future: Scholarly Communication 2.0," promises to be an exciting 
and thought-provoking event. Is "Web 2.0" just a buzzword, or are 
there real opportunities for scholarly publishing lying beneath 
the hype? Come to San Francisco and find out how evolving 
Internet strategies and technologies can empower you and your 

Featured speakers are Larry Sanger (Wikipedia/Citizendium), Paul 
Duguid (UC Berkeley), David Worlock (Outsell, Inc.) and Brewster 
Kahle (Internet Archive).
