    Collaborating for Access: Librarians and Independent Publishers

    Thursday, October 5, at 2p ET

    What do librarians REALLY want from publishers, and how can smaller and independent publishers create a better ecosystem? In our sixth Collaborating for Access webinar, COSLA, DPLA, and ReadersFirst are partnering with the Independent Publisher Caucus to bring together librarians and smaller and independent publishers to explore how they can work together to provide greater access for patrons. Topics will include: Opportunities for independent publishers in the library market; licensing options that are most attractive to libraries; and ways that libraries and independent publishers can work together to mutual benefit.

    Please register here.

    This session is open to all.  Please feel free to share this invitation forward with anyone who might be interested.

     

     

    Thanks!
