The Young and the Restless: Fresh Eyes Scan the Library-Publishing Landscape

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A panel of young professionals in academic libraries and scholarly publishing will be asked to share their views on the institutions they’ve recently joined, the current state of information services, library-vendor relations, and how they think their long futures in the scholarly information space might play out. This program is intending to provide a window into the hearts and minds of relative newcomers to the Charleston space; to hear where these young’uns might drive us if their bosses were to toss them the car keys.
