Building a More Connected Scholarly Community: Society for Scholarly Publishing

Start date: June 1, 2022 - End date: June 3, 2022

Location: Chicago in person and online. This is a hybrid event


The SSP community brings together academics, funders, librarians, publishers, service providers, technologists, and countless others with a communal interest and stake in the dissemination of scholarly information in this their 44th Annual Meeting. The last 19+ months have been a fascinating contradiction, making us feel both painfully disconnected and also perhaps more bonded than ever before.  How can we take the strengths we already possessed as a community, fold in lessons learned during the pandemic, and aim for being an even stronger, broader, and more connected community?

This 3 day event has a number of sessions dedicated to accessibility:

  • Taking the Fear Factor out of Digital Publishing: June 1st, 8.30am
  • Digital Accessibility in Publishing-Roles, Responsibilities and Partnerships: June 1st, 2.15pm
  • Operationalizing Image Accessibility Across Platforms, Providers, and Publishers: June 3rd, 10.30am

as well as many other relevant sessions.
