What do librarians and library users expect today? A lot…and for good reason.

Every day, we hear about, and address, the needs of librarians worldwide for the most effective services and technology to fulfill user expectations and demonstrate value. Conversations range from the importance of instant access to unique and authoritative content to new ways to discover, manage, and share information.

At ALA Annual this year, it’s all about transforming libraries. In ProQuest booth 1600, you’ll see demonstrations of just some of the ways we’re using innovation to drive libraries forward.

And, we are hosting two special events on the importance of innovation and the role it plays in the future of libraries. Be sure to reserve your seat at these sessions now, as registration is required.

Informed Innovation: The Role of Data in Driving Library Value
Megan Oakleaf (Associate Professor in the iSchool at Syracuse University) will discuss the importance of utilizing data to drive innovation, improve services and demonstrate value. Our program will also feature highlights of how informed innovation drives development of ProQuest services such as Summon® 2.0, Intota™, RefWorks Flow and the integration of leading e-book providers ebrary and EBL.
