Amy Brand Opening Keynote NISO Plus 2020 - The Other I-Word: Infrastructure and the Future of Knowledge

Sunday, February 23 • 1:30pm - 2:30pm
The current point in time in the information ecosystem is one in which trust and facts and evidence are an increasingly precious currency. Healthy resilient ecosystems require cross-pollination, and this talk will discuss the importance of diversified and distributed infrastructures and how seemingly divergent stakeholders and models ideally interoperate in our print-optional post-truth world.

NISO Plus 2020

Baltimore, Maryland

February 23-25

The first annual NISO Plus conference was an in-person event, held in Baltimore, MD, on February 23-25, 2020. Our goal was to bring stakeholders from across 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. We are happy to share the sessions that we recorded — the keynotes, Miles Conrad Lecture, and NISO-specific content.
