Description

How Can Libraries Be the Heroes in an Ever-Changing Scholarly Landscape?

The good news: academic research is expanding beyond the traditional boundaries of scholarly journals and Western-based sources to include multimedia formats, open access, text and data mining, and the inclusion of diverse and global voices.

The not-so-good news: Scholars, faculty, and students are required to sort through an enormity of scholarly content in databases, archives and an endless array of online sources.

That’s where the library comes in. In this session, you’ll learn how libraries can support their institution’s increasing need for varied, rich and diverse content in a way that is simple and effective. Libraries can both serve the needs of their users and reinforce their position as an authoritative information provider and curator. You’ll see how libraries who provide a unified, discipline-focused approach to collections management can effectively support research, teaching and learning in their institution and academic community at large.

Presenter: Katie Birch, Vice President of Product Management at ProQuest
