Ensuring that we include a librarian perspective in as many sessions as possible is key to NISO Plus’s success as a conference for the information community. This year, you can look forward to hearing from librarians across a broad range of organizations (academic, industry, and public libraries, as well as library service providers) and countries (from Australia to Canada to Sweden), on a wide variety of topics.
Librarians and librarianship will be featured across the NISO Plus program:
- Collaborating to implement Seamless Access (Julie Zhu, IEEE; Heather Staines, Delta Think; and John Felts, Coastal Carolina University with Peter Murray, Index Data)
- Understanding the value of OA usage information (Yuimi Hlasten, Denison University with Stephanie Dawson, ScienceOpen)
- Creating digital collections with and for Indigenous communities (Erika Valenti, Emerald Group Publishing with Oya Rieger, Ithaka S+R)
- Minding the Gaps: Bibliometric Challenges at the Margins of the Academy (Clifford Anderson, Center of Theological Inquiry; Wen-Chi Huang, National Taiwan University Library; and Shenmeng Xu, Vanderbilt University in conversation with Charlotte Lew, Vanderbilt University)
- Perspectives on Metadata Quality and Completeness (Matthew Ragucci, Wiley; Ana Heredia, Heredia & Viggiani Consulting; and Jessica Clark, Érudit / Coalition Publica with Jason Friedman, Canadian Research Knowledge Network)
This is just a sample of what the program has to offer. If you’re a librarian (or someone who works with librarians), this is the conference for you! Be sure to register by Monday, January 9 to take advantage of individual and group early bird rates!
