Buyer/Supplier Roundtable

SLA and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) will host a Buyer/
Supplier Roundtable: Buyers and Suppliers Focus on the Future.

Content buyers know what their organizations will need in the future; content vendors are the ones who will build those products and services. This unique roundtable provides a forum for big-picture thinking around the future of information work, bringing buyers and sellers together to discuss key trends.

Mixed tables of buyers and sellers will participate in facilitated brainstorming on emerging topics in information usage and demand such as:

  • End-user focus for content products
  • Platform-neutral services (buy once, access anywhere)
  • Measurement and ROI


Come lay the groundwork for the next generation of development for both buyers and sellers by learning how "the other half" thinks, in a collaborative environment.

This is an invitation-only event (with limited capacity). If you have content buying responsibility or influence the decision-making process, you may request an invitation from Natasha Kenner.

Metrics / Performance / ROI Panel - KM Cafe

Change management and  focused attention on the bottom line are key drivers for successful information centers.  In this way, validated and verifiable results are articulated as milestones and benchmarks for success.  More importantly, strategic vision grounded in stakeholder buy-in informs our decisions and leads the change.  Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to provide relevant and meaningful metrics as the evidentiary support for our strategic initiatives. But what, exactly, should we measure? Why is it important for us to measure these outcomes?  Is it important to delineate the results not only in quantitative but also qualitative form?  Join us for this exciting  inquiry.

MODERATING:
Marianne Giltrud, The Catholic University of America

SPEAKING:
James King, National Institutes of Health; Rebecca Jones, Dysart & Jones Associates; Juanita Richardson, Dysart & Jones

College and University Business Libraries Section Breakfast

PRICE: $20.00 Member/ $20.00 Student Member/ $20.00 Non-Member

Academic libraries are being challenged to find new, more efficient ways to approach almost every aspect of their work. Some libraries are implementing changes--occasionally major ones--to incorporate agile practices into their operations and to make agility part of their culture. Librarians who have contributed to such changes within their organizations can offer valuable insights to the rest of us. Please join us to learn from the experiences of our presenters as they discuss "Transforming the 21st Century Academic Business Library," "Action-Based Learning Means Action-Based Reference at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business," and "Insights from a Business Library Re-organization.
