Continuing in the tradition of the NFAIS conference which ran for 61 years, we will inaugurate the 62nd year and celebrate the merger of NISO and NFAIS with a new and different conference experience for the information community. Our goal is to bring together all constituencies that are a part of the information marketplace to generate discussion, seek common ground, identify areas of opportunity and provide a space and resources to work towards solving common problems.
The NISO Plus Conference is intentionally designed to bring together disparate members of the information professions into dialogue and conversation. We had extensive feedback that interaction with each other as well as identified experts was one of the most valuable aspects of a conference. As you explore the website, you’ll note that we’ve built the Session Schedule with designated conversation and discussion periods after each session, in order to maximize the opportunities for connection and problem solving. We have specific callouts in the schedule, such as our Ask The Experts Afternoon, aimed at making NISO Plus a unique and engaging conference opportunity for learning and finding solutions to day-to-day organizational issues.
We want the NISO Plus Conference to be a place where publishers, vendors, librarians, archivists, product managers, metadata specialists, electronic resource managers, and so many more professionals come together to both solve existing problems and, more importantly, a place that enables the conversations and thinking that can minimize future issues as we move into a newly dynamic information environment.
