Preliminary Program Now Available: “Libraries as Publishers: Building a Global Community”

Acquisition  Members:

We’re writing to let you know that the draft program is now online for the “Libraries as Publishers: Building a Global Community” conference.  This IFLA Satellite meeting will be held in Ann Arbor, MI, on August 10-12, just prior to the IFLA 2016 WLIC in Columbus, Ohio.  It will provide a great opportunity to find out what is happening in library publishing and collaborations internationally, as well as in North America.

 It is sponsored by our very own committee (Acquisition & Collection Development) and co-sponsored with Serials and Other Continuing Resources.  Please try to attend if you can!!

 The program is available on the website where you can also register and book accommodation.

 We would be very grateful if you could share with anyone you feel might be interested.

 We look forward to seeing you in Ann Arbor to explore this emerging role for libarians.  Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions!

 On behalf of the Satellite program committee:
