About This Two-Part Webinar
March 7, Part One
Library as Publisher: Current Status and Impact on Scholarly Communication
An increasing number of university libraries have assumed responsibility for scholarly communication activities and university presses. This event will bring together professionals from a variety of institutions, asking them to address what the challenges have been for them, name their successes, and articulate their vision for the future.
Confirmed Speakers: Carol Ann Davis, Director of Digital Scholarship Services, University of South Florida Libraries; Andrew Wesolek, Head of Digital Scholarship, Clemson University Libraries; Johanna Meetz, Scholarly Communications and Publishing Services Librarian and Associate Director of Pacific University Press, Pacific University
March 14, Part Two
Library as Publisher: UX and UI for the Library’s Digital Collections
Just how good (or how bad) are the Web-based interfaces encountered by library users these days? Having invested in the creation of significant digital collections, how can libraries enhance usage of those collections? How do scholars and students (especially those working remotely) expect to engage with this content online? What should the interfaces be designed to support? Is there a baseline that has been established? What room exists for innovation in the user experience (UX) and user interface (UI)?
Confirmed Speakers: Rachel Vacek, Head of Design & Discovery, University of Michigan Library; Salwa Ismail, Department Head of Library Information Technology, Georgetown University; Daniel Tracy, Library Information Science & Digital Humanities Librarian, University of Illinois

Registrants will receive detailed instructions about accessing the virtual conference via e-mail the Friday prior to the event. (Anyone registering between Monday and the close of registration will receive the message shortly after the registration is received, within normal business hours.) Due to the widespread use of spam blockers, filters, out of office messages, etc., it is your responsibility to contact the NISO office if you do not receive login instructions before the start of the webinar.
If you have not received your Login Instruction e-mail by 10 a.m. (ET) on the day before the virtual conference, please contact the NISO office at firstname.lastname@example.org for immediate assistance.
Registration is per site (access for one computer) and includes access to the online recorded archive of the conference. You may have as many people as you like from the registrant's organization view the conference from that one connection. If you need additional connections, you will need to enter a separate registration for each connection needed.
If you are registering someone else from your organization, either use that person's e-mail address when registering or contact email@example.com to provide alternate contact information.
Conference presentation slides and Q&A will be posted to this event webpage following the live conference.
Registrants will receive an e-mail message containing access information to the archived conference recording within 48 hours after the event. This recording access is only to be used by the registrant's organization.
For Online Events
- You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.
