Juried Product Development Forums

by | Jun 20, 2016

We are excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Charleston Juried Product Development Forums (JPDFs). The Forums are focus groups designed for publishers and vendors to gather market input from librarians on the development of a particular product or service, and for librarians to discuss market issues with publishers and vendors invited to participate in a forum. They are a unique opportunity for feedback from librarians regarding the design, features, feasibility or pricing of a particular product or service that addresses internal debates and shortens the sales cycle.

Please read carefully for details on how to apply.
