NISO Teleconference

NISO news.
NISO will hold its next open teleconference in our monthly series this coming Monday, February 13th at 3:00 PM.

The topic for the February call will be the recently-published White Paper on the Future Standardization Needs for Electronic Resource Management Systems, written by the NISO ERM Data Standards and Best Practices Working Group. The document is titled "Making Good on the Promise of ERM: A Standards and Best Practices Discussion Paper" and it provides an analysis and evaluation of the current state of standards and best practices that can be applied to ERM systems, as well as recommending action to NISO in a number of further areas to improve the use and interoperability of ERMs. The document can be downloaded at http://www.niso.org/apps/group_public/document.php?document_id=7946&wg_abbrev=ermreview

Tim Jewell, Director, Information Resources, Collections and Scholarly Communication, University of Washington and chair of the NISO Working Group, will be on the teleconference to discuss the white paper and answer any questions.

The call is free and anyone is welcome to participate. To join, simply dial 877-375-2160 and enter the code: 17800743#. All calls are held from 3-4 p.m. Eastern time.

The Open Teleconferences are an quick way to get an update on the status of a NISO initiative. The calls are informal and questions and discussion is welcome. Following the featured discussion, there is also an opportunity for the NISO community to bring up any issue or topic of interest. This is an excellent time for you to raise any concerns, project ideas, or suggestions of focus for NISO in the coming year.
