During a recent BookExpo meeting, a publishing company executive asserted,
"Any company that isn't behaving like a start-up is doomed." What does this
mean in the context of service organizations such as libraries, as well as
businesses that serve the library industry such as publishers and vendors?
How can large institutions be more nimble, act more quickly, adopt new tech
more easily? What can be learned from startups and what can be avoided?

NISO's January 9 webinar Behave Like a Startup: Adapting Your Organization
to Rapid Change will answer these questions and more.

for Libraries - Brian Mathews, Associate Dean for Research and Learning,
Virginia Tech University Libraries will focus on understanding the user
