NISO Educational Programs, February 2018!
Library Standards Alliance Members receive access to the February 7th
webinar as an automatic benefit of membership; however, the virtual conference on The Preprint requires a separate registration fee (unless your institution has purchased a 2018 subscription package for those events). Mark your calendars so as not to miss these informative events!
Wednesday, February 7, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
In an age when rapid reference inquiries may be handled through a mobile phone and a search engine, reference work in the library must change and expand. How is that unfolding? What are the new expectations of the information products once referred to as major reference works – those comprehensive or subject-specific encyclopedias and indexes that served library professional and patron? How are librarians combining free and subscription resources? This webinar will examine a variety of approaches to enhanced service.

NISO Virtual Conference
Wednesday, February 14, 11:00am - 5:00pm
According to Wikipedia, the preprint is a “version of a scholarly or scientific paper that precedes publication in a peer-reviewed scholarly or scientific journal”. Preprint archives, such as arXiv and SSRN, rapidly achieved prominence in both the hard and social sciences as rapid access to new work became a priority. It’s wonderful to have those platforms, but what are best practices for libraries and other content providers in working with them? Should preprints be assigned DOIs? What relationship should exist between pre-prints and discovery services? What is the interoperability with link resolvers like? What are the implications for citation practices?
