SLA Conference INFO-EXPO 2009
This report is designed for information providers and publishers. The annual SLA conference is a pivotal event for those in the information profession. Librarians, knowledge managers, technologists, key opinion leaders, small boutique information sellers, and corporate information giants gather. Each brings a unique agenda and perspective. As a long time industry analyzer, Outsell wanted to judge the effects of the economic crisis down the aisles of the conference exhibit hall, and to share impressions and implications with our clients. Outsell analysts at the conference spoke with representatives, reviewed products, and interviewed vendors and IM professionals. This report contains our findings:
