MARKET SEGMENTATION FOR THE ACADEMIC LIBRARY SECTOR
7 June 2006, London
Market segmentation underpins good marketing planning and user profiling practices. Academic have traditionally segmented their user base in terms of year group, staff /student and similar approaches. Whilst these are undoubtedly important characteristics to keep in mind when developing value propositions and service offerings to users there is much to learn from new approaches to market segmentation based around benefits sought and behavioural characteristics.

BY THE END OF THE EVENT PARTICIPANTS WILL HAVE:
· identified why market segmentation is a key issue for academic library & information services
· knowledge of the range of segmentation options
· gained an understanding of the process of creating segments usable in library planning
· many examples of successful segmentation in both the private and public sectors
