Slides from Rick Anderson

New ideas, business models and technologies enter the scholarly landscape at an ever-increasing rate. In response to this deluge of potential innovation, lightning talks, shotgun sessions and elevator pitches designed to help us understand these technologies have become a mainstay of publishing and library conferences alike. Despite this, it is very difficult for libraries and publishers alike to not only keep up with it all, but to understand which technologies will truly help them meet their specific needs and goals as well as serving academics at every stage of the research cycle.

This session will offer an overview of this complex, shifting landscape, and to explore the ways in which we might think about the role of technology in the scholarly landscape. What will really help us engage with our patrons and users? Which products will help us satisfy our specific missions? Whether you’re a Librarian, a publisher or even a technologist with an idea, the session aims provide you with a framework for thinking about technology driven products that goes beyond the cool factor and matches productized technologies to real points of need.
