WHERE CAN YOU FIND NISO @ ALA

FRIDAY, JUNE 23

Meeting Name: 2017 NISO/BISG Changing Standards Landscape: Delivering the Integrated Information Experience
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location:
McCormick Place West - Room: W183b
ALA Scheduler Link

Description: Metadata: How can the information community function effectively without it? High-quality metadata drives publishers’ marketing efforts and enables libraries’ support for discovery. Whether one is operating in the publisher’s supply chain or in the library’s tech services, distribution and ingestion of complete, accurate and explicit metadata is key to success. It fuels every patron’s information activity and subsequent assessment of satisfaction and usage.

But, best practices for creating and delivering metadata across the varied spectrum of those who use it are not always followed. And it’s not just about books. Metadata must be applied to the full range of content formats – research data, recordings, and more. In a variety of settings and systems, it sustains the information needs of an increasingly mobile population!

During the NISO-BISG Changing Standards Landscape Forum, attendees will hear from industry professionals working elbow-deep in identifiers, subject classification, rights and other metadata that drive an integrated user experience.

SUNDAY, JUNE 25

Meeting Name: Resource Access for the 21st Century: Toward A Modern Access Architecture
Time: 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Location:
Hyatt Regency McCormick - Room: Clark/CC 22AB
ALA Scheduler Link

Description: The library electronic subscription/access environment remains primarily based on IP-address authentication despite its numerous problems and limitations. Sponsored by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) and the STM Association, Resource Access for the 21st Century (RA21) is an initiative which will improve the user experience and provide a more seamless access experience to patrons, while also providing greater control and analytics over network activity. Community conversations and consensus building are necessary to explore potential alternatives to IP-authentication and to build momentum toward testing and adopting alternatives among publisher, system vendors, and library partners. This session will include a landscape overview and a description of the exploratory work and project elements now in progress. This will be followed by an interactive audience discussion of the opportunity, necessary requirements, pitfalls to avoid, as well as potential next steps.
