The [] 2014 NFAIS Annual Conference
A new information mindset has emerged - forever changing the business of information!  How are content providers and librarians re-envisioning their content, its use, and even their businesses in order to remain relevant and what are the economic implications of these changes? Is the ability to give voice to content changing the future of information creation and discovery? And if so, what does it mean for publishers, database producers, aggregators, distributers, librarians and users?

What if you were freed from the constraints of the past - free to re-envision your products, services, and business models? Where would you begin, what would you do, and what would those products, policies and business models look like? The 56th NFAIS Annual Conference will help you answer those questions.  It will provide you with an ideal opportunity to interact with peers who are adopting the new information mindset and embracing technology to move forward, transform, and ultimately allow content to unveil its secrets!
