NISO September Virtual Conference: Library Data in the Cloud
Virtual conferences are 5-6 hour conferences held online in webinar-like formats, with occasional breaks in the schedule for participants. The longer length allows the depth of coverage of a conference coupled with the convenience of a webinar.
Date: September 24, 2014
Time: 11:00 am - 5:00 pm Eastern
ABOUT THE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
Cloud computing seems to be a growing trend, no matter the industry or type of information system. Library systems are no stranger to this trend; just about every major systems provider has a cloud-based solution available. While many factors for selecting a cloud system are similar to those for any information system decision, there are some special issues and challenges for storing your data in the cloud, including security, privacy, ownership, interoperability, and transferability.
In NISO's September 24 virtual conference, Library Data in the Cloud—to be held from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT—libraries that have explored the use of cloud systems will discuss their experiences, their concerns, issues encountered, and lessons learned.
