Librarians are well-aware that high quality metadata is the key to a user successfully identifying a useful resource. Provider awareness of this has shifted with workflows being enhanced to deliver more complete, accurate, and reliable data. That said, twenty-first century systems do more and require more than simple matching of traditional bibliographic elements to correct fields. Users may be looking for more precise identification of non-traditional content while library consortia may need new indicators useful to collective collections. The 14th Annual BISG-NISO Forum will explore the needs of stakeholders and systems in the interests of interoperability and user satisfaction. This four-hour virtual event will bring together stakeholders concerned with the improvements needed to more efficiently and effectively create and transfer metadata between information systems. What data is useful? Which fields are the most frequently used? Should new data and new fields be introduced in order to better serve the needs of the community? What are the issues associated with reliability and credibility? Finally, this Changing Standards Landscape forum will close with a discussion of what such enhancements might enable in a more efficient, more automated, and ultimately more useful information ecosystem. This is the 14th NISO – BISG Changing Standards Landscape forum. The event is co-hosted by Todd Carpenter, Executive Director, NISO and Brian O’Leary, Executive Director, Book Industry Study Group.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual members meeting will look a bit different this year. We usually hold an in-person meeting at the ALA Annual Conference, but since that has been cancelled, we are inviting you to attend the annual meeting virtually instead. The NISO Annual Members Meeting and Standards Update will take place via Zoom on Friday, June 26, from 11am - 12.30pm EDT/4pm - 5.30pm BST. You will hear from our Executive Director, Todd Carpenter, and other NISO staff about important organizational issues, including our strategic planning process for 2020-2022, the completion of the NISO/NFAIS merger, the inaugural NISO Plus conference, our organizational finances, and our standards program plans for the coming year. The meeting is also a chance for you to share your own feedback about NISO and our work, and to ask us any questions you have about our organization and how we operate. Following the Members Meeting portion of the session, Working Group members and NISO staff will provide updates on several NISO projects: Content Platform Migrations - Kim Steinle, Duke University Press E-Book Metadata Working Group - Ravit David, Scholars Portal, Alistair Morrison, Johns Hopkins KBART - Andrée Rathemacher, University of Rhode Island, Noah Levin, Independent Open Discovery Initiative - Rachel Kessler, ProQuest Seamless Access - Jason Griffey, NISO
The NISO Annual Members Meeting and Standards Update will take place via Zoom on Friday, June 25, from 11am - 12.30pm EDT/4pm - 5.30pm BST. Both portions of this program are open to the public and all are welcome to participate. You will hear from our Executive Director, Todd Carpenter, and other NISO staff about important organizational issues, including our strategic planning process, the annual NISO Plus conference, our organizational finances, and our standards program plans in general for the coming year. The meeting is also a chance for you to share your own feedback about NISO and our work, and to ask us any questions you have about our organization and how we operate. The Standards Update provides the latest news about NISO’s current efforts, including standards, recommended practices, and community meetings covering many areas of interest to the library and publisher community.

The Seamless Access project continues to move forward in an effort to make federated authentication easier for users through the development of its own service, and also through efforts to improve the overall world of federated authentication. This session will start with an overview of how Seamless Access makes federated authentication a better experience while also working to make it more privacy protecting for users. The session will then use a case study to re-examine the remote access experience through the eyes of a library that navigated a shift to majority (or exclusive) remote access. How did their traditional access workflows hold up, what worked - and what didn’t? What does this imply for the access technologies and best practices that libraries should consider for the future? Anyone interested in electronic resource access, authentication, user experience, and the future of authentication should attend!
