KBART: Improving Access to Electronic Resources; Plus, Finding the Hidden Side of Seattle

Presenter: Peter McCracken, Co-founder & Director of Research, Serials Solutions, and Co-Chair KBART Working Group
The Knowledge Base and Related Tools (KBART) project is a joint UKSG/NISO undertaking, designed to define best practices for transferring data among and between participants in the e-resource supply chain, including librarians, publishers, ERAMS vendors, aggregators, and consortia. This session will present the project's work, and highlight its benefits to library patrons. In addition, the presenter, a born- and bred-Seattleite, will provide his recommendations for the best sites worth visiting while in Seattle.
