Re-inventing Reference: This is NOT Your Grandmother's Encyclopedia!
Reference works must be engaging if they're going to useful or profitable. Mash-ups, data visualizations, search technologies, and APIs now enable publishers and end-users to recombine content – engage with – and derive value from, materials that have previously existed in static circumscription. But how should publishers be investing in their reference content? Can they unlock the value of relationships found in and between their previously published works? How can they make their content more accessible to end-users or combine content, technology, and user interactions together to create a compelling, and complete, reference environment? See how publishers are revitalizing their approach to reference offerings. Then, consider new ways to expose, deploy, and derive new value from your [re-invented] reference content. Track: Technology
