Roger Schonfeld will deliver the keynote address at Allen Press’s Emerging Trends in Scholarly Publishing Seminar in Washington DC on April 21. Schonfeld will talk on “Adaption—The Changing Nature of Libraries.”

Abstract: Sometimes survival means being faster, stronger, or smarter. Sometimes it means being flexible, alert, and able to adapt. To fulfill their mission, libraries are required to develop all of these traits and more in response to climatic shifts exerting stress on their traditional relationships, function, and structure. An expert in the changing roles of the academic library, scholarly publisher, and learned society, keynote speaker Roger Schonfeld will tell us how he sees libraries adapting and developing new strengths as they find their place in the ecosystem going forward.


When: April 21, 1:15 pm – 2:00 pm.

Where: Embassy Suites DC Convention Center, Washington DC

Registration for the seminar is now open through the Allen Press website.
