Our speakers will cover the different options for interacting with OA Switchboard (manual, via API or custom connector), illustrated by their own real-life experiences and lessons learned. Our tech partner will add background information and best practices across all publishers operational on OA Switchboard, as well as with future trends that are shaping.
