NISO Webinar, Building Support for Non-Traditional Scholarly Outputs, August 17, 2022

The second half of this two-part NISO Roundtable allows participants to expand the discussion into the expanding realm of non-traditional outputs, and what support for such output may demand of different stakeholders in the scholarly ecosystem. Video, audio, and data visualization are already increasingly common output formats. Specific disciplines, such as the arts, require support for images, performances, and more. What does this all mean for our research infrastructure? For editorial or content management systems? For discovery tools? For content platforms? System requirements are becoming increasingly more complex — and also exciting — as content and system providers have to think outside the box to meet their users’ needs. Confirmed speakers include Wind Cowles, PhD, Director, Research Data and Open Scholarship, Princeton University Library; Salwa Ismail, Associate University Librarian for Digital Initiatives and Information Technology, University of California - Berkeley; Carl Stahmer, Executive Director, DataLab, Data Science and Informatics, University of California -Davis; and Bonnie J. Russell, Project Manager for MESH Research, Humanities Commons, and Digital Specialist for HuMetricsHSS, Michigan State University.
