Libraries depend on strategic library management and discovery technologies that power their work behind the scenes and patron-facing services. The industry that creates these strategic library technology products has seen profound changes in recent years through business dynamics such as horizontal and vertical consolidation. Join us as we hear from Marshall Breeding as he discusses the approaches companies are taking to adapt to these changes
This webinar is targeted at librarians who deal with collections management, and promotion and publicity.
Libraries depend on strategic library management and discovery technologies that power their work behind the scenes and patron-facing services. The industry that creates these strategic library technology products has seen profound changes in recent years through business dynamics such as horizontal and vertical consolidation. Mergers among the slate of companies developing library management systems now approach the limits of consolidation tolerable by the library economy. Beyond this type of consolidation, top-level companies offering a diverse portfolio of products and services to libraries have begun to expand their involvement with these strategic technologies, exploiting synergies possible among content, technology, and services.

After several years in legal publishing with WestLaw, Ray entered the world of academic publishing in 2000, working for Charles Scribner’s Sons and Macmillan Reference USA, as an editor developing print reference sets. This work evolved into a role as product manager for newly-emerging publishing platforms during the transition from print to digital. Ray built and managed library databases which integrated content from proprietary, licensed, and public domain sources into digital resource centers, which served the needs of students and faculty, primarily in history and literature.
In 2002, Ray began working on the digitization of primary source collections for Cengage Learning, developing and maintaining relationships with over 350 libraries and archives around the world to identify, catalog, conserve, digitize, and make accessible their unique and valuable content for education and research through library databases, as publisher for the Gale Primary Sources program.
At Wiley, Ray is developing a new program to digitize and make available the unique content from Wiley’s journal publishing partners, and from other learned societies, archives, and libraries around the world. This includes working at the intersection of digital primary source collections and the emerging needs of students, libraries, faculty, and researchers in the digital humanities, to make data sets and content available in ways that tie to institutional needs and outcomes.
Ray is also a student at Columbia University, and lives with his family in Brooklyn, NY.
David Shankland is Director of the Royal Anthropological Institute, and Honorary Professor of Anthropology University College London. Formerly, he was Reader in Anthropology at the University of Bristol.
By training a social anthropologist, he has worked extensively in modern Turkey, where he was sometime Assistant and Acting Director of the British Institute of Archaeology. His ethnographic researches include the study of state, politics and religion in Turkey, with the special study of the Alevis, a non-normative minority (The Alevis of modern Turkey, Routledge, 2007), and investigations into the relationship between excavation, archaeology and the secular state.
He has also conducted researches over many years into the history of anthropology, particularly concentrating on the emergence of modern disciplinary boundaries (Shankland, ed. Anthropology and Archaeology, Berg 2012). He has also produced work on Westermarck (Westermarck, ed. RAI 2014), F. W. Hasluck (Archaeology, Anthropology and Heritage in Anatolia, 2004, 2013: Isis Press, Istanbul), and also on J. L Myres, and the emergence of modern anthropology at the University of Oxford, where he has been Humphrey Wanley Bodleian Library Fellow.
He directs the institute’s ongoing project on the history of anthropology over the last 150 years, which attempts to reassess the place of the RAI in the creation of anthropology, and to highlight the multiple, interlocking scholarly roots of the modern discipline.

Charles Prussak, Pharm D, PhD has over 25 years’ experience working in academia and the biotech industry developing cell-based therapeutics. Dr. Prussak is currently the Director of the Cell Therapy Translational Laboratory (CTTL), which has been created by the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) to serve as the engine to generate translational cell-based therapeutics that take advantage of breakthroughs discovered in UCSD research laboratories. His long history in developing cell-based therapies began at Viagene, Inc., where he was a founding scientist of a pioneering gene therapy company. As Director of Product Development, Dr. Prussak was responsible for the creation of the first ex vivo modified cell products and recombinant retroviruses entered into human clinical trials. After Chiron, Inc., acquired Viagene, Dr. Prussak was named Director of Gene Therapy at UCSD and was responsible for the creation and production of cell and gene therapy products for campus researchers. To expand the scope of this program, UCSD joined with the Boehringer Mannheim Corporation to form Molecular Medicine. As President & CEO of Molecular Medicine, Dr. Prussak directed the production of gene and cell therapies that were employed in over 20 phase I-III clinical trials conducted in the US and Europe. Following Molecular Medicine, Dr. Prussak co-founded Tragen Therapeutics, which developed gene therapies for the treatment of leukemias and solid tumor cancers. Tragen’s lead product employed gene-modified B cell leukemic cells to activate immune responses that sensitized the target cancer to standard chemotherapeutic agents. These ex vivo clinical studies were precursors to current targeted immunotherapies employing immune modulating agents.
Jordi Petriz has authored or co-authored nearly 100 research contributions; some in high impact Journals including Nature Medicine and Leukemia. He has been the President of the Iberian Society for Cytometry (SIC) since 2007.
Jordi Petriz received his BSc degree in biochemistry and animal biology from the University of Barcelona. He then pursued his PhD at Barcelona after acceptance at the Cryobiology and Cell Therapy Department, Cancer Research Institute. In 1998 he obtained his PhD degree in physiology and immunology specializing in functional-based mechanisms on multidrug resistance against anticancer agents. The cytomic functional approach was used to account for multidrug transporters and drug resistance profiling in highly refractory cancer cells. As a postdoctoral fellow he applied new cytomic approaches to address questions on whole blood counting of CD34+ progenitor cells. In 2000, he joined the Subcommittee on Quality Assessment of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Grafts (established by the European Group for Bone Marrow Transplantation). Since then he has become a Principal Investigator at the IJC.
