2003: Speaking about Consortia
In 2003, HKN participates on a panel at the CHLA/ABSC Annual Conference in Edmonton on Consortial Deals: Best Practice or Blind Ambition? Moderated by Jessie McGowan, panelists discussed whether consortial deals are the best way to achieve results for libraries and whether they are sustainable in the long run. Panelists included consortia, hospitals, and vendors. Vivian Stieda represented HKN and discussed the purpose and effectiveness of consortia, and the efficiencies received by engaging them.
