NISO Two Part Webinar, June 12 and June 19

NISO Two Part Webinar, Discovery and Online Search
Wednesdays, June 12, and June 19, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm (Eastern Time)

We all know that automated personal assistants can find you the closest gas station or sushi spot. But can that same technology be programmed to find the best ten articles for a student’s assignment? The capability is unclear, as is the advisability of the task. But what is clear is that voice-driven technology as well as arbitrary algorithms are changing the ways in which users may be driving or directed in their information tasks. Taxonomies, controlled vocabularies, and similar tools have been used for decades in delivering effective online search. But now, with Alexa and Siri potentially being in the room, shouldn’t libraries and vendors be talking about what’s operating under the hood?

Part 1 of this Webinar, Drivers of Change in Online Search, will be held on Wednesday June 12, 2019.

Part 2 of this Webinar, Personalized Content, Personal Data, will be held on Wednesday, June 19, 2019.

Confirmed Speakers include: Bob Kasenchak, Access Innovations; Scott Young, Montana State University; Jim Hahn, University of Illinois; Kelly Dagan, Amherst College; Chad Mairn, St. Petersburg College; Other TBA
