KBART Open Hour Webinar

Do you work for a publisher, aggregator, or content provider and have questions about how to implement KBART for your content? Need to know how to format a particular KBART field, or what it is used for? Want to learn about resources you can use in developing your KBART files, or how to get feedback on your files? On October 8, 2019, at 11 a.m. Eastern, join the KBART Standing Committee for a FREE, 60-minute "open hour" question-and-answer format webinar hosted by NISO and get information about KBART straight from the group. We will begin the webinar with a brief presentation on the KBART endorsement process, followed by answers to frequently asked questions and discussion of questions posted by attendees. To submit a question ahead of time, please email kbart@niso.org with the subject "Webinar Question". Attendees will also be able to submit questions during the webinar via chat. KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) is a NISO Recommended Practice that describes how to transmit data about serials and books/monographs to knowledge bases maintained by link resolver, resource management, and discovery system vendors.

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.

Looking for answers: How will we keep paying for all this stuff? How are we going to archive all this digital stuff? How can we align author incentives, the publishing marketplace, and the future of the scholarly record? When will libraries benefit from well-designed free software? How much should we be telling users what they want versus asking? How does anyone manage information overload? Oh, and how will we keep paying for all this stuff?
