In this session speakers will discuss the topics of metadata completeness, and talk of inclusivity strategies that help expand contributions into the overall global record of scholarship.
The scholarly record is a reflection of the continuous progress made by multiple actors within the context of scientific structures and processes, across disciplines and geographies. What we think of as metadata is expanding, and the notion of ‘content types’ is changing. New, unfamiliar and disruptive actors are sometimes met with apprehension in the world of scholarly communications. Yet, we’re all here to make the progress of scholarship visible and discoverable. Transparency and completeness of scholarly records will help understand the impact of research, funding, and changing policies. It can support a more robust and comprehensive assessment of research, and contribute to improving integrity within as well as public trust in science.
The foundation of scholarly record completeness is broad, perhaps even universal, participation of actors involved in the progress of scholarship in documenting its progress, sharing metadata and building structured relationships between them. Therefore, inclusion of all relevant organizations into this transparent documentation process is essential and we invite a range of speakers to share and discuss effective strategies.

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!

Just how good (or how bad) are the Web-based interfaces encountered by library users these days? Having invested in the creation of significant digital collections, how can libraries enhance usage of those collections? How do scholars and students (especially those working remotely) expect to engage with this content online? What should the interfaces be designed to support? Is there a baseline that has been established? What room exists for innovation in the user experience (UX) and user interface (UI)?

This presentation was given by Joshua Tallent, Director of Sales and Education at Firebrand Technologies, and served as the opening keynote during the NISO Hot Topic Virtual Conference "Metadata and Discovery: Quality is Key," held in May 2023. In his talk, Tallent went through some of the challenges and steps needed to ensure that when it comes to data, good enough isn't good enough.

So much of library workflow and usage is shrouded from public view, sometimes due to the interest of protecting patron privacy, sometimes due to the assumption that the patron or the public would have no interest in knowing the process. At the same time, trust is most easily generated in the context of transparency. For example, the public needs to understand and trust the weeding process and/or the rationale behind off-site storage. What does your community understand or need to learn about the ways in which libraries operate in order to trust the library more fully? How can vendors and service providers support more transparency to users?
This event will take the form of a round-table discussion.

Over the past few months, everyone has had to become accustomed to meeting in virtual environments, as well as mastering other technologies that allow us to continue to work together collaboratively — within and outside our organizations. This roundtable discussion will address both the fun side of learning new ways of working together and the deeper issues of setting expectations, accommodating different requirements, and identifying the constraints that made clear where boundaries would be needed.
