Wednesday, October 18: Strategic Directions: Strategic Thinking - Five Years Ahead (NISO Webinar)


This webinar will be driven by discussion of five significant trends (as identified by the global community of libraries) and their long-term ramifications. How are emerging technologies re-shaping existing legal protections and what does that reshaping mean for users and providers of digital content in a networked world? Can we rely on online education technologies to produce a more highly educated workforce? Will the networks of information and communication technologies enable collaboration as anticipated? How much personal data ought a provider to expect in exchange for content access? How far does the right to privacy extend? Information and communication technologies (ICT) are having an impact on human interactions and transactions. How will those transactions look in 2022?


Confirmed Speakers: Keith Webster, Dean of Libraries, Carnegie Mellon University;
Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Research Data Management; Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center, Johns Hopkins University; Rick Luce, Dean, University Libraries, University of Oklahoma; and MacKenzie Smith, University Librarian, University of California – Davis.

Wednesday, November 1 and Wednesday, November 15: Engineering Access Under the Hood (NISO Two-Part Webinar)


The first half of this two-part webinar program (scheduled for November 1) will provide an overview of the current landscape of options available to academic institutions for ensuring and streamlining access to materials by legitimate users. What’s working, which technological approaches may be outdated, and what needs to be done (research, technology upgrades, etc.) to resolve related problems?


The second half of this webinar (scheduled for November 15) will provide an overview of the issues associated with delivering quality metadata by and to various stakeholders. Based on comments heard at conferences and in meetings, it’s an old issue. But what are the existing barriers to delivering reliable metadata? What improvements might be made in the process? What stands in the way of successful implementation?
