The Big Not-So-Easy: A Symposium on 21st Century Health Sciences Collection Development & Resource Sharing

Looking to reconnect with your collections and resource-sharing colleagues, renew your insights into area best practices, and reflect on the future of librarian and publisher relationships? Join us for the can’t miss in-person symposium on 21st Century Health Sciences Collection Development & Resource Sharing at MLA ‘22 in New Orleans!

Included with full experience registration, symposium sessions will take place throughout the annual meeting. They are designed for health science librarians, information professionals, and publishers at all levels of experience and knowledge.

Sessions will address multiple dimensions of the not-so-easy realms of health sciences library collections and resource sharing, including current and post-pandemic pain points for professionals, librarian and publisher relationships, and trends in scholarly communication.

You can look forward to engaging sessions of a variety of formats encompassing librarian, publisher, and expert perspectives. Speakers, panelists, and trainers will help you develop skills and knowledge in collection development and resource sharing in areas that may include:

  • evolving publication types and tools
  • negotiation and licensing
  • diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • transformative agreements and open access
  • copyright and digital lending

Together, we will build on the significant contributions of our MLA communities and vendor partners to strengthen collection development and resource-sharing practices to help create a more resilient future for health sciences resources.
