UKSG are pleased to announce the details of our one-day conference to be
held in London this November:
Usercentric: new strategies for scholarly communication
UKSG One-Day Conference IOM3, London, 25th November 2010
Users’ information habits and expectations are changing. Those of us who
have traditionally been involved in meeting their information needs –
librarians, publishers, subscription agents and other technology vendors –
find ourselves at risk of disintermediation. What are we doing about it?
In this new one-day conference, UKSG has invited senior executives from
across the scholarly information community to explain how major
organisations are reshaping their strategies to focus more effectively on
users, and to review the operational impact of these evolving strategies. A
final session will explore how best practice recommendations and standards
are helping to integrate the new supply chain.
This new event, aimed at decision-makers, provides the scholarly information
community with a more intimate forum for strategic dialogue, following the
successful growth of UKSG’s annual conference. Chaired by Caroline Williams
(Deputy Director, Mimas), speakers include:
o David Main, CEO, Swets
o Nicky Whitsed, Library Director, The Open University
o Alice Keller, Editorial Director, Library and Information Science, De
o Chris Beckett, Vice President for Business Development, Atypon
o Alison Jones, Director of Digital Development, Palgrave Macmillan
o Damyanti Patel, eLibrary Manager, Birmingham City University
o Ross MacIntyre, Senior Manager, Mimas, The University of Manchester
A closing discussion and drinks reception will provide ample opportunity for
delegates to share their own experiences.
