Publisher /Vendor/Library Relations Interest Group

What drives acquisitions in 2014?
The face of acquisitions is changing –from single copy print to shared print, from print to electronic. Demand driven acquisition (DDA) has changed how we handle purchasing – and revolutionized the approval plan process. Spaces are changing too, from in-library shelving to shared space and even off-site high density storage. Publishers are becoming vendors (Project MUSE, UPSO), and with the advent of Espresso Book Machines some libraries are becoming publishers. These monumental shifts impact how we manage our work, but also significantly impact how we deliver books and e-content to our students and researchers. How do these changes impact how we acquire? And how do they impact the way vendors and publishers do business with us?
Our distinguished panel of experts will tell us about their experiences, and share some of the newest practices that can ease the pain of a constantly changing workplace.
