Each year, in excess of two and half million scholarly articles are published. When you add to this the different versions of these articles, the data which underpins these articles, along with other academic outputs such as conference proceedings etc, the wealth of information available to researchers is growing rapidly. Researchers need to be able to discover, access, and share this information in order for it to be put to its proper use – the development of future discoveries. Publishers are actively engaged in methods to help researchers connect with very specific resources that meet their needs. This starts with advising authors how to be specific in their use of titles, keywords and abstracts, and travels the full route through scholarly communications by offering accurate classification in metadata and participating in programs to make use of Google Scholar a more satisfying experience. This session will seek to cover a broad array of techniques and technologies that are in use or under development to enhance the experience of researchers as consumers of scholarly content. During this time we will ask how are publishers helping librarians and their users make the most of their collections? What are the barriers in their way? What are they not doing that they should be? What role does technology have in helping both publishers and librarians ensure researchers have access to the content they need?
