Information Community News
As a community-led organization, NISO has always made our standards and recommended practices openly available for everyone to use and benefit from. And events like our monthly open teleconferences, which support our standards program, are also free for all to attend or watch the recording.
We are delighted to announce that, going forward, we are also making all our online educational content openly available on the Cadmore-hosted NISO video repository, with a two-year rolling wall. This means that everyone is now welcome to access, download, cite, and use recordings of our monthly webinars, virtual conferences, and other online programming from 2018 and 2019. In January 2022, we will add content from 2020, and we will continue to share new content on an annual basis.
Our educational program features a host of expert speakers from all areas of the information community, including librarians like Patti Brennan (National Libraries of Medicine), Allen Jones (The New School), and Frankie Wilson (Bodleian Library, Oxford University); publishers such as Holly Falk-Krzesinski (Elsevier), Susan Doerr (University of Minnesota Press), and Jeff Lang (American Chemical Society); and service providers including Mark Hahnel (Figshare), Phil Leahy (OpenAthens), and Oya Rieger (ITHAKA). Topics covered in 2018 and 2019 range from artificial intelligence to open source publishing technologies, from building diversity in the workforce to the power of library consortia — there’s really something for everyone! All videos include transcripts, and you can also create your own clips and playlists — especially handy for anyone with teaching or training responsibilities.
We hope you’ll find this additional NISO content valuable and warmly encourage you to use it yourself, share it with others, and let us know what you think!
