Content and Apps for Mobile Devices: Engaging Users in the Mobile Experience Nov 8, 2011 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
 

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 [Full-Day Seminar, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, includes continental breakfast at 8:00 a.m., lunch and refreshment breaks]

Details: The increasing popularity and use of mobile devices such as smart phones, e-readers, and tablet PCs is transforming the way users access and interact with information. Publishers and librarians are responding to these perpetually connected users with new services and new content formats. This seminar features speakers who will share their perspectives and experiences on delivering, providing and accessing content in the mobile arena. The focus of the presentations will be on the user - how are publishers and libraries engaging the user? What do users want from the mobile experience? Attend this session if you'd like to learn more about how users interact with mobile content that publishers and libraries are developing, collecting, and making accessible.

This seminar will feature a keynote speaker, presentation of a detailed case study specific to the topic, and individual speakers representing STM and humanities publishers, as well as librarians.
It is anticipated that there will be opportunities for participants to contribute and pose questions.

Events for Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Date Time
Moving to the Online-Only Journal: Breaking Free of Print Constraints Nov 9, 2011 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM
 

Wednesday, November 9, 2011 [Full-Day Seminar, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, includes continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m., lunch and refreshment breaks]

Details: Has the decision been made to go "online only," or are you currently weighing the risks and rewards of such a strategy? This full-day seminar will explore the issues to consider in moving to online-only publication and the opportunities available by breaking away from a print-based format. Speakers will address concerns about dropping print, including: advertising revenue, converting print users to online readers (including those who receive print as a member benefit), archiving, and pricing strategies. Speakers, who represent journals breaking new ground in the online presentation of content, will give examples of their features, cover issues around-and solutions to-continuous publication, and discuss the expanded and creative use of linking and videos.
