Ex Libris Group
The recommendations of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Open Discovery Initiative (ODI) and the recently launched collaboration between ProQuest and Ex Libris highlight the challenges and opportunities arising from the dual roles that some stakeholders in the library domain play, in which they act as both information providers and technology vendors. In this session, we will discuss the benefits of collaboration for all stakeholders, despite the conflicts of interest that can stem from the duality of roles, and the impact of increased findability of content through discovery interfaces. The speakers represent various stakeholders in the scholarly publishing arena.
