NISO Two-Part Webinar - Where Does it Live? Part Two

Particularly in the humanities where the scholarly monograph is of critical importance, where and how books may be accessed by scholars is a sensitive issue. How should libraries be communicating with their communities about issues of access, convenience and responsiveness when it comes to the printed volumes that may take up so many valuable square feet of the library’s physical plant? Automation and offsite storage represent a wonderful benefit to institutions, but do researchers feel their needs have been slighted? How best to engage with the community on sensitive issues of preservation and best practice?

NISO Webinar

Helping people gain a greater understanding of the information community — our issues and concerns, challenges and opportunities — is core to NISO's mission. Our events are a key element of this, with our popular webinar program at their heart. And, following the NISO/NFAIS merger earlier this year, all NISO members can now attend all 14 webinars in 2020 completely free of charge! This includes an unlimited number of places and full access to a recording of each webinar for anyone who is unable to attend the event itself.
