NISO Webinar, Trends in Technology - Smart Services in the Academic Library

When content and platform providers dream of offering smart services to their clients, what do they envision as their value-added offering? Provisioning text and data mining services? Support for the Internet of Things or for Big Data? This session will bring together publishing technologists to spotlight what they see as emerging trends and the rationale for development. Of course, from the customer’s point of view, the issue is whether such smart services are truly in demand from the user population. This webinar is intended to bring together the various stakeholders to look at emerging technologies serving diverse research communities.
