Electronic resources continue to flood the library marketplace at a staggering rate and there is no turning back now.  Libraries are making an effort to accommodate the influx of electronic content while budgets and staffing levels continue to diminish. Publishers are undergoing a paradigm shift, trying to maintain traditional publishing models while experimenting with born digital content.

This full day pre-conference will discuss the current state of electronic resources from both the library and publishing perspectives and offer insight into the E-Everything future. Some of the current issues that will be addressed include access, content integration, technology, and discoverability.  Presentations by librarians and vendors will update you, challenge your thinking, stimulate questions and generate discussion.  Attendees will gain knowledge of the market and get ideas for plugging into the latest and the greatest information technologies for electronic content.
