Each month, NISO hosts an Open Teleconference during which we highlight the work ongoing within NISO and provide an opportunity for anyone in the community to provide feedback to NISO on any work or suggested new work. These calls take place on the second Monday of each month and have been quite a success for NISO since they were launched in January.
In August, Tina Feick was guest speaker during the latest call. Tina is Director of Sales and Marketing at Harrassowitz and co-chair of the NISO Institutional Identifiers (I2) Working Group. She discussed the status of the I2 project, its goals, and their soon-to-be-released draft descriptive metadata structure.

The next Open Teleconference will take place on September 14th at 3:00 PM EST. The dial-in instructions are distributed in NISO Newsline. They are also available on the Events page of the NISO website.
