Emerald to exhibit at SLA-AGC

Emerald Publishing looks forward to meeting with its communities and customers when exhibiting at the 23rd Special Libraries Association Arabian Gulf Chapter Conference (SLA-AGC), Kingdom of Bahrain, Tuesday 7 - Thursday 9 March 2017.

SLA-AGC is one of the major academic events in the MENA region’s annual calendar.

The theme of this year’s event is "Quality of Library & Information Training and Educational Programmes: The Road Map Toward Accreditation", which, over the course of the three days, will aim to combine innovations with creative knowledge and information provision strategies, in respect to the changes in the techniques of human polarization of knowledge.

New for 2017 – the Emerald eCase Collection


In keeping with this theme, we want to keep you up-to-date with Emerald's products and services, and will be proud to present our Emerald's eCase Collection at the conference.

New for 2017, our eCase Collection is a comprehensive digital library that incorporates case studies from two of the world’s most highly regarded business schools, the Kellogg School of Management and Darden School of Business. The collection is enhanced by high-quality content from Emerald’s established case study products, which now include instant access to teaching notes for institutional faculty members.

Celebrate our 50th with us and find out what’s new at Emerald

We’re delighted that Shariq Mumtaz, Emerald’s Managing Director – Global Sales, will be hosting an event at SLA-AGC on Tuesday 7 March – alongside Business Managers Samir El Hefnawy and Amina Said, Emerald’s MENA Regional Manager Ramy Hassanien – to help mark our 50th anniversary with our communities. And we hope you can join us!

The celebration will give Shariq and colleagues a chance to not only give you a flavour of our heritage and what we’re doing to mark our 50th anniversary throughout 2017, but also to show you some much of what’s new at Emerald – including the new Emerald Publishing brand itself, the newly refreshed emeraldinsight.com research platform, our major investment in our books programme and new ebooks and books collections.

Bringing together over 1,600 eBooks, Emerald eBook Collections combine breadth of content with the ease of electronic access.

eBook collections contain scholarly monographs, edited collections, handbooks and professional texts and now include our complete books publishing programme, in addition to series.

Commissioned from leading academics and authors, Emerald’s eBook Collections feature cutting-edge, high impact, international research across a variety of subject areas.
