"I Hear the Train A Comin' - LIVE" session. Each issue of Against the Grain, Greg Tananbaum's Train column explores what's around the bend on the scholarly communications track. Join us as Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of Libraries at the University of Kansas and Chair of the Steering Committee for SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), and William Gunn, Head of Academic Outreach at Mendeley, engage in a lively discussion about the transformative issues information providers, publishers, and libraries will soon be contemplating. The session will be conversational in nature. No PowerPoints, no canned speeches - just two insightful industry experts talking about access, the role of the library, the state of innovation in the scholarly communication space, and other important topics. Ample time will be set aside for audience questions.
