Ms. Caroline Campbell, Marketing Manager, will represent the international academic publisher at the conference, showcasing to librarians how IGI Global’s InfoSci®-Journals, a database (nearly 25,000 peer-reviewed articles sourced from 185+ scholarly journals), and InfoSci®-Books database (4,500+ reference books containing nearly 100,000 chapters), can provide emerging research for a fraction of the list price.

Through these powerful research tools, librarians can acquire the highest-quality content contributed by over 100,000+ industry-leading academicians and researchers worldwide that span across 350+ topics in 11 core subject areas including: business and management, computer science and IT, education, engineering, environmental and agriculture, library and information science, media and communications, medicine and healthcare, security and forensics, and social sciences and humanities.

Through these research databases, IGI Global provide libraries an opportunity to support a sustainable OA movement and provide an additional source of APC funding for their faculty through IGI Global's InfoSci-Journals Open Access (OA) Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Program which will:

For any library that invests in IGI Global's InfoSci-Journals database, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA article processing charges (APCs) for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.**
