Continuing the RMG 2013 Town Hall focus on the transformational impact of e-Books on libraries, RMG once again announces a roundup of key ILS, Discovery, and e-Book vendors from the global library industry for a big tent discussion on the urgent need for libraries to provide customers with easier, simpler, and satisfying user experiences to find and use licensed and open e- and p- content.
"Make it like Google and Amazon" is a typical takeaway from Focus Groups on wanted academic and public library services.
RMG invites vendors to report progress and problems in delivering cross-industry services that position libraries to offer radically improved customer services and user experiences, and to increase ROI in content and technology.
RMG's industry challenges are:
Vision Statements for Public Library Customer Services and Content Delivery
(from RMG's RFIs, RFPs, and Market Research Requests)
The Library provides its readers, viewers, listeners, gamers, and tactile users with the content they want in the languages and formats they prefer: print, electronic, audio, multimedia, interactive, tactile.
Rob McGee will moderate the Town Hall with assistance from Marshall Breeding and RMG's Geoff Payne (Melbourne Office).
Panelists, invited commentators, and other participants – including library industry company executives and key industry players – will be announced in subsequent news releases.
RMG's Annual Presidents' Seminars (The View from the Top) at ALA Midwinter Conferences invite global ILS company and other library industry executives to focus on initiatives and trends that impact libraries. Rob McGee develops the topics and themes, and leads these seminars. The seminar is open to all – librarians and vendors – to encourage dialogue on topical issues and concerns.
