NFAIS Webinar – Document Delivery in the Information Ecosystem
Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2016
Time: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm EDT
Scholarly output continues to increase with new journals introduced each year. At the same time, shrinking library acquisition budgets coupled with increasing journal subscription prices are challenging scholarly content buyers to do ever more with less.
With this dynamic, document delivery, one of the more traditional functions within research libraries, continues to stand as an important component for the advancement of research and scholarly communications.
This NFAIS Webinar, Tuesday, October 11, will examine the role of "Document Delivery in the Information Ecosystem" today and in the future. This webinar will cover the value that partnerships between publishers and content aggregators provide their customers for document delivery. These partnerships, among other benefits, complement subscription sales and foster expansion into new markets including non-subscribing libraries, corporations and unaffiliated knowledge workers.
Ian Palmer, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Reprints Desk
