Building a More Connected Scholarly Community

June 1–3, 2022 | Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers | Chicago, IL, USA


The last 19+ months have been a fascinating contradiction, making us feel both painfully disconnected and also perhaps more bonded than ever before. There have been challenges we may never have imagined, and we are a community that rises to challenges. 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? We hope to look back, reflect, learn, adapt, evolve, and move forward even stronger and more connected. 

Our aim is to present an in-person meeting in Chicago, and we are excited at the prospect of gathering together in this way once again. That said, the health and safety of our attendees is a prime concern, and we will of course monitor and be ready to modify plans as needed. 

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. We look forward to the 44th Annual Meeting as an opportunity to reconnect and to connect anew.
