Obtain a robust introduction to the work of NISO IDI, the Information Discovery and Interchange topic committee. Representatives from the committee and affiliated working groups will introduce the new 2018 NISO strategy paper and discuss the hot topics that affect our industry and, especially, the discovery landscape. Topics include the discovery of open access material, discovery of non-traditional content-forms, the exchange and quality of metadata, and systems interoperability. Updates will also be provided on some of NISO’s most prominent working groups: the Open Discovery Initiative – promoting transparency in discovery; KBART Automation for the automatic transfer of holdings information into institutional knowledge bases, a soon-to-be-published (and eagerly-awaited!) NISO recommendation; and Transfer, which addresses issues and develops tools related to the movement of scholarly journals between publishers.
NISO is where publishers, librarians and software developers come together to discuss trends and needs for collaboration. It provides a forum for creating mutually accepted standards and recommendations. True to this philosophy, we invite you to come to this session, learn about, and discuss existing and emerging needs for collaboration and standards.
Transfer is a cross-sectoral NISO Standing Committee comprising representatives from the scholarly publishing, intermediary and library communities. This platform. Transfer is also a forum providing guidance and recommendations to develop specific tools such as the Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service.
