INTERNET LIBRARIAN 2017 • October 23- 25, Monterey, CA
ROI MAGIC SAUCE: COMMUNITIES, COLLECTIONS, COLLABORATION

There IS a winning combination for Internet Librarians and their communities where the return on investment (ROI) is substantial. The magic includes our communities, our collections and how we work with both of those – close collaboration! This year we explore our relationship with:

• our communities – our customers, partners, suppliers and supporters
• our collections – our print and electronic materials, both in-house or global, as well as our supporting and experimental technologies
• our collaboration – our relationships and partnerships with our core communities as well as the broader world-wide information and GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) industries

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
