The NFAIS 2019 Annual Conference will explore what’s driving the critical changes and identify strategic solutions required to support today’s information consumers who-through the use of technology-are shrinking the world, changing expectations, democratizing access, and defining responsive, adaptive solutions that will redefine how stakeholders rise to market demands.

SSP 41st Annual Meeting

The SSP 41st Annual Meeting will represent a focused effort on inviting new voices into their ongoing conversations-not just geographically but with any new perspectives that help them move together toward a new age of scholarly communication. What new technologies will be at work in the new status quo they are building? How will publishers continue to meet the needs of authors and readers, especially in previously underrepresented markets? How do these big picture changes affect day-to-day operations in editorial and production offices? Are the solutions and challenges the same for smaller publishers and societies? They can also explore solutions for potentially seismic developments like Plan S or other policies from funders and even nations. Join the vibrant community of librarians, academics, publishers, service providers, technologists, and others with a stake in how research is shared as they tackle tomorrow’s challenges and broaden their horizons.
