Registration Now Open For Upcoming NISO Forum on the Future of Library Resource Discovery

The two-day NISO Fall Forum, “The Future of Discovery” is scheduled to take place in Baltimore, Maryland on October 5 and 6, 2015.

From Today’s NISO Announcement:

This meeting will engage the library and vendor community in discussions that will be used to set future standardization priorities in the discovery landscape. This engaging program will build upon the ideas put forward in a white paper examining discovery services, written by library consultant Marshall Breeding, commissioned by the NISO Discovery to Delivery Topic Committee.


“We are excited that a number of library and industry leaders who will participate in the program,” states Todd Carpenter, NISO Executive Director. “Rather than being a purely educational event, we have created an agenda presentations from expert perspectives, but more importantly is an opportunity to engage in thought leadership about the needs and expectations participants have for discovery services. Our ultimate goal is for the Forum’s round table discussions to generate ideas that the NISO community will take forward for potential action that will improve discovery services for all providers, publishers and library patrons.”

“The Forum has been generously sponsored by EBSCO, SAGE Publications, ProQuest, Ex Libris Group, and Elsevier,” adds Juliana Wood, NISO Educational Programs Manager. “We are grateful that this support from these industry leaders enables NISO to keep the registration fee low and also live stream portions of the program openly to a wider audience. It is also possible to register for the full live stream program, though we expect a much richer experience will be gained by attending in person, through interaction with the speakers and colleagues from other institutions.”

Early Bird rates are available through September 18.
