*Wednesday, March 15, 2017*

*1:00pm – 2:30pm (Eastern)*

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 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 by new business models.
Providers that 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 time may also be devoted
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.
