What trends, issues, and external pressures should we focus on in the near future? How can we evaluate possible solutions and strategies for these issues? How can we meet these challenges together? The Charleston Trendspotting Initiative is a community-engaged process for collaboratively exploring social, policy, economic, technology, and educational trends and forecasting their impacts on scholarly communication, publishing, and academic libraries.

This pre-meeting seminar will open with a trend development activity designed to engage attendees in identifying critical and emerging issues impacting the scholarly communication ecosystem. Next, the group will compare and contrast these trends and issues to a list generated in a similar session at the 2018 Charleston Conference to examine the similarities and differences. Join us for robust discussion and feedback on these topics designed to continue shaping and deepening our understanding. Help us focus on the future of our industry and the changes that will affect us.
