NISO Plus 2020
Continuing in the tradition of the NFAIS conference which ran for 61 years, in February of 2020 we inaugurated the 62nd year and celebrate the merger of NISO and NFAIS with a new and different conference experience for the information community. Our goal was to bring all of the constituencies in the information economy together to generate discussion, seek common ground, identify areas of opportunity and provide a space and resources to work towards solving common problems.
