Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will understand the role of advisory panels and user summits in librarians-publisher relationships, and be able to advocate for new communication avenues between librarians and information providers.


Librarians and publishers are part of a shared enterprise – bringing quality electronic content to users - that faces critical challenges. This presentation provides perspective on ongoing dialogs between information providers and librarian customers. At this session participants in the panels and summits reflect on expectations, experiences and outcomes.
