Register Now for the Society for Scholarly Publishing's Fall Seminars November 7-8, 2005
Publishers and publishing services vendors, librarians, scholars and others interested in the business environment of scholarly publishing are welcome at the SSP 2005 Fall Seminar Series November 7-8, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. Please note SSP offers a reduced membership rate for librarians.
November 7: The ROI of Discoverability: If They Can't Find It, They Won't Use It and Can't Buy It Investing in discoverability pays off. Discoverability is affected by the content itself and also by the titles and descriptions you assign to it, from first creation through final dissemination. Explore it from the point of view of the creators and the users of information, the librarians and search engines that help them both, and the advertisers that underwrite it.
November 8: Embracing Technology and Process Changes to Successfully Transform a Scholarly Publisher
Understanding how to balance the significant gains associated with new technology with the real costs - both human and financial - often linked with widespread change can be daunting to publishers. Explore a variety of book and journal technologies, the challenges some publishers have faced when implementing them, how they overcame them, the process changes that worked, as well as where the industry is headed next from a technology perspective.
November 7: Institutional Repositories: Opportunity or Threat
Will institutional repositories (IRs) become the backbone of the Open Access movement? Learn why libraries are building Institutional Repositories and explore how publishers view repositories and how we can all work together - or is it a face-off? When repositories are networked into Google Scholar, what will happen to publishing as we know it?
November 8: Copyright: Developments at the Core of Your Business
Explore broad issues pertaining to copyright assignment and your organization's philosophy, focusing on policy, effects on discourse and communication, and your business. Hear the latest on practical issues such as interlibrary loan, fair use, digital rights management, versioning, and access.
