What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by saying a big thank you to all our sponsors — your support has made #NISOPlus20 possible! We’ve received contributions from 28 organizations — small and large, nonprofit and commercial, national and international — and we appreciate each and every one.
Thanks to the generous support of the Alfred P Sloan Foundation — with a little help from our Byte-level sponsors (Atypon, Crossref, Elsevier, IEEE, KnowledgeSpeak, Library Market, OCLC, Project MUSE, and SPIE) — we are delighted to have awarded NISO Plus scholarships to 12 information professionals (eight US-based and four international)*. The two categories of scholarship (Early Career and Diversity & Equity) will enable information professionals who are typically under-represented at industry conferences to attend and have a voice at NISO Plus. Representing all our key stakeholder groups — libraries, publishers, and service providers — the awardees will receive free registration, travel to and from Baltimore, three nights at the conference hotel, and a stipend for meals and local travel.
Our Megabyte sponsors are the American Chemical Society, American Psychological Association, Apex, Cadmore, Clarivate / Web of Science, and Silverchair, and those of you attending the conference will have the chance to hear from several of them when they introduce our keynotes.
You’ll also be hearing from some of our Kilobyte sponsors, Access Innovation, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASTM International, Data Conversion Laboratory, EBSCO, and Bowker / ProQuest, as they will be introducing a couple of other sessions.
Whether or not you’ll be attending NISO Plus, we hope that you’ll help spread the love this Valentine’s Day and join us in thanking all of these organizations — without them this important new conference wouldn’t be possible!
*Look out for more information about the scholarship winners here soon!
