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.
