Information Resources

CAUL Procurement is pleased to announce that as part of the program for the CAUL Vendor Exhibition Days, additional forums are being scheduled for CAUL library staff to meet with Gwen Evans, Vice President of Global Library Relations at Elsevier. As Gwen will be attending all the Exhibition Days, this presents an excellent opportunity for library leaders to hear directly about plans and strategies from a senior Elsevier executive and to pose questions and raise concerns. CAUL Procurement recently provided a "Talking Points" document to Content Coordinators to help prepare for the current round of customer relationship meetings being held by Elsevier. A similar document will likely be shared before the meetings with Gwen Evans.

Venue: Library, Queensland University of Technology (Level 7, Room 714 - V Block, Gardens Point)

  • Monday, June 3, 1:30 PM (for a 2:00 start) The event will end at 4:00 PM.  Afterwards, Content Coordinators and colleagues will continue to meet to discuss other procurement matters.
  • Level 7, room 714 (in the Library) - V block which can be identified via the orange HiQ shape on this PDF



This Library Futures Forum, co-hosted by CAUL and Elsevier is an exclusive event that will provide insights into:

  • Elsevier's current direction and new initiatives
  • The latest developments in Open Access agreements across various countries
  • Recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI)

A 20-30 minute Q&A session will be included in the two-hour forum. Submit your questions for Gwen Evans in advance via Slido.
