*NISO Webinar*, *Wrestling with Access and Authentication Control*

Wednesday, February 6, 2019, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

This session will examine various aspects of access and authentication
controls in the context of digital information resources. Is there a
scalable approach that can satisfy the needs of both corporate as well as
academic environments?  If not, how can technology be engineered or
leveraged such that the nuanced needs of all may be met? What trade-offs
might need to be recognized and negotiated? Are there satisfactory answers
to the questions that have arisen with regard to privacy and data
exchange?  This session will bring together a number of industry experts to
discuss the challenges and opportunities.

*Confirmed speakers: Heather Flanagan*, Pilot Coordinator Academic Pilots,
RA21; *Tim Lloyd*, CEO, Liblynx; *Jessica Bowdoin*, Head, Resource
Licensing and Delivery, and *Lara Bushallow*, Director of Digital
Technologies and Services, George Mason University Libraries.

*NISO Virtual Conference*, *Is This Still Working? Incentives to Publish
Metrics and New Reward Systems*

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

The primary selling point of metrics for the academic researcher was the
promise that the proof provided by such metrics of the value of one’s work
would be the increased and long-term funding needed to *do* such work.
Prestige, tenure, influence, even celebrity -- these have been stepping
stones to securing significant (and much-needed) grants to educational
institutions of all sizes and types. But have these incentives been
subverted over time or in specific ways? Is the drive to publish-or-perish
the best mechanism for encouraging substantive study? The integrity of the
publishing process and perhaps the integrity of the funding model for
higher education itself is at stake. This session will look at some of the
troubling questions surrounding the incentives offered to the working
scholar, researcher, and scientist.

Presenters in this virtual conference will consider the following questions:

·      How might institutions and research facilities best weld available
indicators of use or influence into a meaningful metric?

·      If individual scholarship is best gauged by the value assigned to it
by the larger community, then what collection of metrics should be gathered
for purposes of determining appropriate rewards in the context of academia?

·      How might institutions better address this challenge and reward
faculty appropriately?
