ACRL and CHOICE Launch New Webinar Program

ACRL and CHOICE have teamed up to present a new sponsored webinar program connecting academic and research librarians with a host of content and service providers, publishers and other experts who serve their market.  This new program will kick off from 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern on April 23, 2013, with a webinar exploring multiple visions of the library of the future, featuring the University of Washington Information School’s Joe Janes, author of the forthcoming Rowman and Littlefield book, “Library 2020.”  Next up, from 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern on May 22, 2013, will be a discussion of the state of libraries and eBooks, featuring EBSCO Vice President for eBooks and Audiobooks Scott Wasinger.

The new ACRL-CHOICE webinars present a unique opportunity for fostering discussion among vendors, publishers and authors and an unmatched academic library audience of 11,500 ACRL members and 15,000 CHOICE users and fans.  Structured as 60-minute, live, interactive webinars, this new program offers an unprecedented way for libraries to learn about new ideas, developments and products, and to actively participate in discussions with companies that serve their market.  It also allows sponsors to receive unfiltered feedback from the academic library community.
