Title: Under Pressure: Online Resource Management in the Age of Disruption
Guest Speaker: Mark Goodwin
Date: Wednesday, November 9th, 2016
Time: 10:00am ? 11:00am CT / 9:00am ? 10:00am MT

Description: End users (students, educators, researchers) and providers (librarians, service providers) alike face ever-increasing pressures with regard to a fundamental element of a successful academic environment: ease of access to information. Perhaps equally important is to consider which methods, tools, and pathways are best to facilitate discovery of this information, as well as discerning which resources are the most relevant for various contexts. This presentation will provide a survey of current concepts which drive the emergence of these technological tools and resources. The pressures these resources are meant to address will be discussed, as well as the new additional pressures these tools generate for the user.

Speaker Bio: Mark Goodwin spent his nearly 30 year career in the publications department at the American Physiological Society (APS). In the early 1990s, he produced the journal department?s first ever digitally edited manuscript and the first digital image to be published in their journals. He continued his work with digital tools by designing the first online editing toolkit for APS, which still serves as the basis of their system today. From 2006-2016, as Editorial Manager of the APS journals program, Goodwin and his team transitioned the APS journals program to a complete online-only, article-based XML workflow. Now self-employed as an independent consultant to academic publishers, Goodwin?s broad experience over three decades has provided him with a comprehensive perspective to speak to publishing in this digital era of disruptive technologies.
