Your Budget is Stretched. Reference Content is Free Online. So Why are New Reference Works from “Traditional” Publishers Worth Your Investment?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

New technologies and processes are rapidly transforming reference content – the way it is commissioned and sold by publishers, edited by experts, acquired by librarians, and used by patrons. What are the implications of this transformation for you, and for how you allocate your budget?

A panel will provoke your thoughts and provide answers on these topics:

- How can I balance providing reference content that is the most trustworthy vs. the most current, without breaking my budget?
- What is the role of free reference content?
- What new models for buying reference content are becoming available to me?
