The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) has released their 2018 webinar schedules and topics. On the roster is one scheduled for March 13, 2018 at 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. (EST). The topic is “The Scholarly Kitchen Webinar: The Future of the Big Deal.”

The “Big Deal”, package purchasing of all of a publisher’s titles, continues to dominate the journals marketplace. But is that dominance at an end? Are libraries increasingly cancelling their collections packages or are they moving to even bigger deals, wrapping up subscriptions with open access fees and a wide variety of workflow tools? Get perspectives from librarians and publishers about where things are heading and what challenges are likely to arise.

The SSP webinar program delivers a series of highly informative, thought-provoking webinars designed to challenge and stimulate discussion. Covering timely topics and offered regularly throughout the year, the one-hour webinars remain available within the library archive on SSP’s website. To register, click here.
