A panel of publishers, aggregators, and reference and collection development librarians will present and discuss transformations resulting from the accelerating shift from print to digital reference works.

Topics covered will include changes to the publishing and commissioning of reference content, new models for purchase and distribution, and strategies for putting authoritative reference material in front of the students and researchers who need it.
