Our Countdown Begins: NISO Plus 2022

Information Community News

With less than six months till our next NISO Plus conference (February 15-17, 2022), we’ll be bringing you monthly updates here on I/O as we count down the months, weeks, and days...

The big news for this month is that we officially welcomed our NISO Plus 2022 Planning Committee, with kickoff meetings covering all time zones — from Australia to Brazil! The 27 committee members come from 11 countries across all continents (except Antarctica) and they collectively represent all our key stakeholder groups — libraries, content providers, and the service and infrastructure organizations that support them. They come from NISO member and non-member organizations and they include past and present NISO Plus scholarship winners, Board, and committee members. Some have served on past Planning Committees, others are new this year — together they will be helping us ensure that next year’s conference is the most successful yet!

Equally critical to the success of NISO Plus 2022 are our wonderful sponsors! We are hugely grateful to the 10 organizations that have already committed to supporting next year’s conference — Access Innovations, Atla, Bowker/ProQuest, Cadmore Media, Crossref, Edaptive Technologies, HighWire, OCLC, Project MUSE, and University of Rhode Island Libraries. There’s still plenty of time to join them — and plenty of options to choose from, ranging from $500 - $15,000. Please see our website for more information, and feel free to contact us at nisohq@niso.org if you have any questions or would like to talk to us about your requirements.

Last, but not least, in case you missed it we’ve just made the NISO Plus 2021 content openly available! The 90 videos contain a host of content on topics of importance to the information community — our thanks to sponsor Cadmore Media for providing the repository for our video content.

Look for more updates on NISO Plus 2022 here in the months to come, including registration information in October’s I/O!
