7th Annual SSP Librarian Focus Group: Publishers/Librarians

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
