Webinar: Audits and Assessment

Wednesday August 11, 11.00am - 12.30pm EDT (Canada/US)

Organizations of all sorts are expected to audit and assess their
activities, but what does this actually involve? Join us to hear from a
group of experts on this topic, who will be sharing their ideas and
experiences regarding what works and what doesn’t. Confirmed speakers
include Gillian Harrison Cain, Atla; Bill Kasdorf, Kasdorf & Associates; Valrie
Minson, University of Florida; and Makala Skinner, ITHAKA.

Virtual Conference: Ebooks and Collections

Wednesday August 25, 12.00 - 4.00pm EDT (Canada/US)

Libraries exist to serve the needs of their researchers, not the other way
around. If humanists prefer print for their activities, then both content
providers and librarians must ensure that this research need is met. So how
should the community adapt? This virtual conference will kickstart the
conversation, providing an opportunity for a wide group of stakeholders to
highlight their community’s needs and share their views on how to meet
them. Confirmed speakers include Tom Bruno, University of
Pennsylvania; Christina
Drummond, OA Ebook Usage Data Trust; and Steve Fallon, De Gruyter.

Coming Soon!

Looking ahead, please save the dates now for our September 8 webinar on Data
- Creation, Stewardship, Use
<https://www.niso.org/events/2021/09/data-creation-stewardship-use>, and
our September 29 Virtual Conference on Effective Data Management
<https://www.niso.org/events/2021/09/effective-data-management>. We’ll also
soon be sharing news of our next training series, starting in
mid-September, which will focus on the important topic of diversity,
equity, inclusion, and accessibility, as well as a free webinar workshop on
the same topic!

We hope to see you at one or more of these events, and thanks as always for
your support!

Best wishes
