Institutions of higher education globally are facing unprecedented challenges as COVID-19 continues to present risks and uncertainties that threaten their budgets, their student enrollment, and their research programs. But it’s also a time of opportunity, driving increased adoption of educational technology and infrastructure, and making open educational resources, online learning, and deepened digital engagement the norm. How is this impacting long-term strategic planning for libraries, publishers, and service providers? Our next virtual conference, Changes in Higher Education and the Information Marketplace, brings together a group of key decision-makers to discuss the "new normal" and consider the long-term implications for all stakeholder groups.
