Indigenous knowledge, standards, and knowledge management - Discussion

After many years of being overlooked and marginalized, there is now growing awareness of the importance of Indigenous knowledge, and the need for information systems and standards that support it. Developing these in ways that are respectful of the context - cultural, historical, and more - as well as the ownership of this information, is vital. With numerous conversations about these issues taking place around the world, it's time to move from words to action. The participants in this session, who represent a variety of perspectives, will share their thoughts on where we should be focusing our efforts through a mix of presentations, roundtable discussion, and audience participation.
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!
