The information industry continues to adapt to changes in technology, in user expectations and in the library marketplace. Those adaptations have taken the form of consolidation in specific areas (such as, but not limited to, the consolidation in integrated library systems). Who are the new players? What exactly does a venture capitalist do and why are they entering this chaotic information ecosystem? The first portion of this two-part webinar on March 8 will review exactly what's happening in this rapidly shifting industry.
Product is re-invented in new forms, buoyed up by new business models. Providers who used to be in the business of journal publishing now are developing and licensing complex workflow environments. The second half of this two part webinar, held on March 15, will feature discussions of how product design and development operates now. Some discussion may also be given over to how librarians might best work with content providers to ensure that practical requirements are understood, negotiated and satisfied by these new players and providers.
