This session will examine the role and powers of the modern library consortium. Content and systems providers are aware of the need to successfully address consortia demands, but may not be as aware of the importance of collaboration with such groups. Consortia may be set up to satisfy different needs or achieve specific goals in areas such as licensing of content or technological support. Regional or statewide consortia can offer publishers significant insights into what may be expected in a forthcoming fiscal year or the flaws in a proposed business model. The session is intended to foster engagement as well as understanding between supplier and buyer.
Confirmed Speakers Include:
- Emily Farrell, Library Sales Executive, MIT Press
- Jill Grogg, Licensing Program Strategist, LYRASIS
- Jill Morris, Executive Director, PALCI

The NISO registration model assumes one computer in use per site (one registration = one computer in use for a group). You may have an unlimited number of staff from your institution/organization view the live broadcast from that connection. Those unable to listen in to the live broadcast will be able to listen to the archived recording included in the cost of your registration. Please contact NISO (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a particular need for additional access to the live broadcast at your institution.
If you are registering someone else from your organization, either use that person's e-mail address when registering or contact email@example.com to provide alternate contact information.
Speaker presentation slides and Q&A will be posted to this event webpage following the live webinar.
Registrants will receive an e-mail message containing access information to the archived webinar recording within 48 hours after the event. This recording access is only to be used by the registrant's organization.
For Online Events
You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.
