NFAIS Forum on Google, the Web and the Future Roles of Publishers and
Librarians:  Registration Discount Ends Friday, June 12th.  

 

Just a reminder that the registration discount ends on June 12th for the
NFAIS workshop on Google, the Web, and the Future Roles of Publishers and
Librarians.  The meeting, scheduled for June 26, 2009 at Drexel University
in Philadelphia, PA, is one that you won't want to miss.  And virtual
attendance is now an option if you cannot travel to the meeting! 

 

You will learn from Stephen
<http://www.infonortics.com/publications/google/arnold-bio.html>  Arnold,
author of the recently released Google:
<http://www.seyboldreport.com/research/google-positioned-be-major-player-21s
t-century-media>  The Digital Gutenberg, about Google's evolution, their
competitive advantages, and the media roles that they are positioned to play
in the not-too-distant future. You will hear about Google's acceptance by
scholars and researchers based upon academic surveys, actual usage in a
corporate setting, and the first hand experience of a Ph.D. candidate using
the Web on a daily basis. You will listen to content providers discuss their
experiences in working with Google to increase user awareness and market
reach. And you will hear how abstracting and indexing services and
librarians are transforming their products and services for today's
Web-based information environment to ensure that scholars and researchers
obtain the quality search results that are essential to efficient and
cost-effective research.   In closing, Roy Tennant
<http://roytennant.com/dayjob.html> , Senior Program Officer, OCLC Programs
and Research, will share his insights on the future role of libraries and
publishers in the face of Web information resources such as Google, and
discuss what they must do in order to ensure that that they continue to meet
the information needs of future generations of scholars and researchers.
