Libraries in a Digital Age 

10 May 2016, 4:10 PM – 4:50 PM  at McCormick Place, W196

As technology and media continue to evolve, libraries are creating new digital resources and launching new collections. They source materials not just from publishers, but from other libraries, private collections, corporations, cultural institutions and directly from academia. And they make these collections available online to patrons, students and scholars in new ways that better intersect with our everyday workflows. This shift to expand the role of libraries while enhancing users’ digital experiences requires content owners to provide more complete and complex metadata in order to leverage libraries’ unique audiences and channels. What new business models are possible for library partners… and libraries themselves? What distinctive services will we find at the intersection of “library” and “content?” Join this forward-looking discussion of libraries in the digital age and find out what you’ll need to know to take advantage of these opportunities.


Skip Prichard, President and Chief Executive Officer, OCLC

Panelists include:

  • Steve Potash, President and Chief Executive Officer, OverDrive
  • Rick Anderson, Associate Dean for Collections & Scholarly Communication in the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah


Future of Metadata: A Look at 2025

11 May 2016, 9:50 am – 10:35 am, McCormick Place, W192

What will publishing metadata look like in 2025? Will we still be crating ONIX files and sending them via FTP or will all trading partners link data across the Web? In this session you will learn about futuristic topics such as linked data, identifiers that tie related works together, and the internationalizing of subject classification.
