Description: Robert Karen, Director of Procurement Services at WALDO, will present the 2018 spring update on all things WALDO including new products, trends in the marketplace and a quick review of the upcoming summer renewals.
We will dive into current industry news and trends covering online resources (ebooks, journals, and databases) and technology (discovery, ILS, and new library services). He will also highlight emerging procurement models, what are the next big vendor acquisition to happen this summer, feedback from recent library conferences (ALA Midwinter and Charleston), plus more.
We will spend time talking about why your knowledgebase will never be 100% accurate and what the problems are in the supply chain.
Still using EZproxy? As several new options are rolling out -- libraries need to scope out the possibilities and find out what is required from the library to move forward with these tools.
Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the overall direction the industry is moving, as well as tools to better identify the strategies in play to help reduce the cost of your current online resources.
