Zoe Harris to keynote ALPSP Conference&Awards 2016
- 24 Aug 2016

The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers has announced Zoe Harris from Trinity Mirror will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 ALPSP Conference and Awards. Her presentation is entitled 'What can scholarly publishing learn from what newspapers have been through and where they are going?'

Newspapers play an incredibly important role in public life and British society, but they are a challenged market. The industry is facing disruption. The changing shape of Britain is influencing content and the delivery of content. Join Zoe Harris on September 14, 2016, to find out how Trinity Mirror plc is determined to innovate to find ways to future proof their brands for future generations, and, how the world of scholarly publishing can learn from this.

Zoe is Group Marketing Director at Trinity Mirror where she heads up marketing, analytics, insight and corporate communications across many power news brands. She works closely with editors to ensure advertisers and consumers alike understand and value their unique place in increasingly fragmented media markets. Prior to this role she worked at WCRS as lead strategist on Sky, as Marketing&On-air Director at MTV, and in roles at ITV and the Guardian.

The ALPSP Conference runs from September 14-16 at the Park Inn Hotel, London Heathrow, UK. Interested parties may visit http://www.alpsp.org/Conference/ to check out the full programme and for registration details.

STM to conduct Intensive Course in Journal Publishing in Hong Kong
- 23 Aug 2016

International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers' (STM) is conducting an intensive course in journal publishing, designed for people working in scholarly publishing, primarily with journals. The course is scheduled to be held from November 6-9, 2016, at Lantau Island, Hong Kong.

To gain at most benefit from the course, the ideal participant is required to have at least one - three years publishing experience as junior or middle manager. Others with more experience will find the course a useful refresher and an inspiration for their future career. The experience may be in editorial, sales, marketing or content management roles. The course is also valuable for people working in other roles such as finance, web publishing and technology, or customer service. Participants moving into journal publishing from other publishing sectors can also benefit.

Experienced practitioners will provide intensive training in all the publishing operations and roles in STM, social science and humanities. As in the previous years, the course will use the case study method - involving the students in competitive business problem solving. The case study also enables the students to share their existing experience and insight, incorporating newly learned skills and insights. Scholarly publishing products come in various formats - e-journals, e-Books, databases, mobile applications and, of course, print. While the course focuses on journals, other products will be put in context of the typical publishing programme.

Presentations have been devised to encourage interaction, and the programme is more flexible in a way that it looks in order to allow for more detailed discussions of what emerge as key areas of interest and concern. It is anticipated that all 'spare' time will generally be devoted to the case study. It will therefore be necessary to stay the nights of 6th, 7th, and 8th November 2016 at the hotel even if you work and live in Hong Kong. All participants should strongly consider bringing their laptops. All participants will take part in their teams oral and written presentations but it will be understood that for some of those attending English is not the first language.

More details on the topics covered and the speakers invited are available at http://www.stm-assoc.org/events/1st-intensive-course-journal-publishing-hong-kong-2016/.

- 22 Aug 2016

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Society of American Archivists (SAA) hosted the third ARL/SAA Mosaic Program Leadership Forum on August 10, 2016, in Atlanta, Georgia, in conjunction with the SAA Annual Meeting. Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the ARL/SAA Mosaic Program promotes much-needed diversification of the archives and special collections professional workforce.

The Leadership Forum featured numerous speakers from the archives and special collections field, including Danna Bell, educational resource specialist at the Library of Congress and former president of SAA; Josue Hurtado, coordinator of public services and outreach at the Temple University Special Collections Research Center; and Ricardo Punzalan, assistant professor of archival studies at the University of Maryland College of Information Studies. The event concluded with a mock interview facilitated by several career archivists and special collections professionals.

The Mosaic Program fellows also attended the SAA Annual Meeting, which focused on issues of diversity and inclusion throughout. The SAA opening plenary featured a keynote by Chris Taylor, director of inclusion and community engagement at the Minnesota Historical Society, with comments by David Ferriero, archivist of the United States. At the conclusion of the Annual Meeting, the SAA presidential address by Dennis Meissner highlighted the need for archivists to develop as individuals and as a profession in the area of cultural competence.
