Beyond the List: Unpacking the Predatory Publisher

Contact: Catherine Smith
Contact: 608-890-1334 - Midwest region
The overall goal of this program is to enable learners to think in a deep way about how librarians can evaluate the published biomedical literature they find and make decisions about quality. I do this by focusing on a real-life situation: the “predatory publisher” scenario. Both practicing librarians and their patrons are affected by the predatory phenomenon in important ways, and I hope to equip librarians to deal with the phenomenon to empower themselves as information professionals and authors alike.

Electronic Resources: Negotiations and Licensing

Contact: Patricia Devine and Helene Williams

Medical and corporate libraries rarely have the luxury of multiple librarians or staff to manage the complex process of resource evaluation, price negotiation, and license wrangling. This session will present the basic concepts of online resource licensing and identify what terms can and should be negotiated or included. Strategies for working positively and productively with vendors will also be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to practice these concepts during the session, to build confidence for approaching these situations in the library setting.
