Improving communication and relationships between librarians and publishers, a conversation with Elizabeth Winter featuring Dan Tonkery, Content Strategies

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:30 AM–9:30 AM Central Time (US & Canada)
Amphitheater 204
2013 Conference Track

Special Conference Event


Dan Tonkery has worked in all facets of the information provision endeavor, serving in such varied roles as Associate University Librarian at UCLA, to founder of Horizon Information Services, to VP of Business Development at EBSCO, to his current "retirement" job leading Content Strategies, a business development consultancy specializing in STM publishing. He has experienced the best and worst of librarians, publishers, and intermediaries and is uniquely positioned to help us better understand the strengths, weaknesses, and pain points experienced by publishers and libraries in our dealings with each other. As the ER&L community attempts to stay in step with our broader community and encourage productive engagement between libraries and publishers, this session will be a conversation to tease out some of the things librarians don't know about publishers and vice versa, to help improve our communication and business relationships. Questions from the audience will be encouraged.
