.....Innovative Roles for Societies, Institutions, Presses, and Libraries

This seminar, jointly sponsored by the Society for Scholarly Publishing and Association of Research Libraries, provides a unique opportunity to learn about current partnerships and explore new opportunities for cost-effective and innovative joint ventures.

The Partnering to Publish seminar, jointly sponsored by the Society for Scholarly Publishing and Association of Research Libraries, provides a unique opportunity to learn about current partnerships and explore new opportunities for cost-effective and innovative joint ventures.

As the skills and infrastructure needed to sustain scholarly communication change in the electronic age, many organizations are reevaluating their publishing strategies. Smaller societies and institutions are finding it increasingly difficult to meet the demands of their authors to link research data with publications, repurpose content in new ways online, or push the boundaries of intellectual property to mix and mash-up. Librarians, meanwhile, are extending their skills to organize and preserve data, support XML workflows, and build deep understandings of digital rights and permissions. Innovative partnerships are evolving; between university presses and academic libraries, between federal librarians and government research staff, and between disciplinary societies and university libraries with strength in their fields. Academic libraries are helping societies with print journals to transition to the electronic environment, federal librarians are collaborating with their agencies' researchers to increase the visibility and impact of their publications, specialist societies are working with institutional repository managers to allow authors to link their journal articles to durable data sources, and university presses are refocusing on the needs of their host institutions.

These are exciting times in the world of scholarly communication, and there are great opportunities for information professionals willing to push the boundaries of their traditional roles. Join your colleagues from across the scholarly communication spectrum for a day of new thinking and networking where case studies and practical tips will abound.

Join us if you wish to:

  • Learn about existing partnerships to publish, how they are structured and organized.

  • Better understand the role that you can play in providing publishing services for your organization in the new digital environment.

  • Improve the quality of your publications through selective acquisition and editorial development.

  • Find out how to leverage resources within your institution to improve your production workflow.

  • Cost-effectively market and promote your published products to achieve maximum impact and author satisfaction.

The registration fee for this full-day seminar includes refreshments and a networking lunch. A special rate of $199 is available for Librarians, and SSP or AAUP members. Other participants are welcome at the rate of $249. There is limited capacity, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

Enhancing Content: Incorporating Interactive Features in Online Content Nov 11, 2010 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM
 

Enhancing content with interactive features has the potential to improve understanding of technical subject matter; enable authors to present complex data in multiple formats; increase/facilitate the use of content and published data, serve as educational tools to disseminate research content to a broader audience including non-specialists, and increase linking of published content with a growing number of databases. Recent advances in data visualization and presentation tools have provided opportunities to enhance the interactivity of traditional content with features such as interactive images, videos, and linking to large datasets, to name a few. In this half day seminar, speakers will showcase specific examples of interactive content and explore new digital features that enhance the presentation of complex concepts. They will discuss the resources and costs involved in establishing the infrastructure to support their efforts, and review the decisions that needed to be made before they began the projects - including the anticipated value to their readership. The speakers will then join an expert panel of authors, publishers, epublishing vendors, and librarians to discuss how these enhanced features are used by their respective stakeholders. The panelists will address where these developments are leading publishing as well as how these and other forms of interactive visualization complement or supplant the traditional publication.

Join us if you want to:

  • Understand emerging trends in interactive visualization.

  • Find out what types of visualization can be included with the published records.

  • Discover the benefits of including interactive content with your content.

  • Learn about the challenges of doing so from experienced practitioners.

  • Explore the future of content enhancement.

Mobile Apps and EBooks - To Do or Not To Do? Nov 11, 2010 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
  Mobile Apps and eBooks - two of the most talked about new technological developments in publishing. But do they have a place within your publishing structure? And could they help you generate revenue? Is there more hype than reality? This half-day seminar has been developed to discuss how some publishers have experimented to get answers to these important questions and to see how similar solutions might work for you.

The seminar will provide an overview of these new technologies and what options are available for publishers - providing real-world mobile Apps and eBook examples specifically for the STM publishing field. We will then have 4 panelists speak on the solutions their organizations chose and why. You will hear first hand why these organizations decided to implement this new media, practical advice on how they went about doing it, and their final result. There will be a strong emphasis on case study and discussion throughout the session.

This seminar will be informative for anyone who is involved with looking at news ways of generating revenue for their publications as well as putting them on the next frontier - mobile space!

Join us if you wish to:

  • Learn about the latest mobile app, device and eBook developments for the STM publishing industry.

  • Determine how your organization could benefit from these new technologies.

  • Find out how other STM publishers have implemented mobile app or eBook technologies - what worked and what didn't.

  • Formulate digital strategy for your organization going forward.
