Composing for the non-text infrastructure dance - Discussion

In this session we will examine the challenges facing scholarly communities whose main method of communication is not the written article but some other form of output.
How do we ensure that the rich metadata, functionality and narratives built into institutional and other tailored platforms can expose and transmit that information to the wider academy and global registries, enabling discovery, access and inquiry, without loss of detail, classification of the work as “OTHER” and downstream degradation of the richness of the data first created?
We will work together, using case studies and exemplars from the recent UK REF and attendees to examine where issues and challenges might arise, who the stakeholders in the processes are, and how we might best leverage the collective to initiate change. Where further investigations / developments are needed, these will be recorded and reported following the session.
The NISO Plus conference brings people together from across the global information community to share updates and participate in conversations about our shared challenges and opportunities. The focus is on identifying concrete next steps to improve information flow and interoperability, and help solve existing and potential future problems. Please join us to help address the key issues facing our community of librarians, publishers, researchers, and more — today and tomorrow!
