Tower of Babel: New Realities in Foreign Language Acquisitions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sourcing information and material from overseas can be a daunting and complex task, with real challenges posed by diverse and fragmented publishing markets and distribution realities as well as the need for foreign language skills. This panel session explores how specialist vendors' expertise and understanding of specific markets can assist librarians in their search for relevant material. Three vendors operating in three very distinct geographic areas will share their experience{s} and discuss how the unique {and fascinating} nature of their activity provides valuable support for successful collection development and continuity, from a common mission to varying services developed with a precise focus on their particular reality. Questions and comments from participants will be very welcome.
