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: University of Sydney (ABS Lecture Theatre 1110, Business School - Building H70, Darlington Campus)

  • Thursday, June 6, 9:00 AM (for a 9:30 start). The event will end at 11:30 AM.  Afterwards, Content Coordinators and colleagues will continue to meet to discuss other procurement matters
