*The Power of Library Consortia: How Publishers and Libraries Can
Successfully Negotiate
<https://www.niso.org/events/2019/04/power-library-consortia-how-publishers-and-libraries-can-successfully-negotiate>*

*NISO Webinar, Wednesday, April 17, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)*

*Confirmed Speakers include:*

·      *Emily Farrell*, Library Sales Executive, MIT Press

·      *Jill Grogg*, Licensing Program Strategist, LYRASIS

·      *Jill Morris*, Executive Director, PALCI


This session will examine the role and powers of the modern library
consortium. Content and systems providers are aware of the need to
successfully address consortia demands, but may not be as aware of the
importance of collaboration with such groups. Consortia may be set up to
satisfy different needs or achieve specific goals in areas such as
licensing of content or technological support. Regional or statewide
consortia can offer publishers significant insights into what may be
expected in a forthcoming fiscal year or the flaws in a proposed business
model. The session is intended to foster engagement as well as
understanding between supplier and buyer.

*Libraries and The Move to Transparency*
<https://www.niso.org/events/2019/05/libraries-and-move-transparency>

*NISO Webinar, Wednesday, May 15, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)*

So much of library workflow and usage is shrouded from public view,
sometimes due to the interest of protecting patron privacy, sometimes due
to the assumption that the patron or the public would have no interest in
knowing the process. At the same time, trust is most easily generated in
the context of transparency. For example, the public needs to understand
and trust the weeding process and/or the rationale behind off-site storage.
What does your community understand or need to learn about the ways in
which libraries operate in order to trust the library more fully? How can
vendors and service providers support more transparency to users?

*Blurred Boundaries: Intellectual Property and Networked Sharing of Content*
<https://www.niso.org/events/2019/05/blurred-boundaries-intellectual-property-and-networked-sharing-content>

*NISO Virtual Conference, Wednesday, May 22, 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
(Eastern Time)*

What’s currently simmering in the realm of intellectual property? There’s
been talk of filtering technologies, making the Internet less hospitable to
re-use of content and images. There’s been talk of a “link tax”. In an age
when digital media collections may quickly be threatened by obsolescence,
what protections may be extended to an archive’s specialized focus on a
particular format (such as televised news) or delivery via a particular
social media platform?

Researchers seeking to disseminate their work to colleagues have adopted a
variety of academic networks as well as well-branded, subject-specific
archives to house their preprints. Here too there may be a bit of unease in
knowing where the boundaries of appropriate sharing lie. Will this platform
or that demonstrate compliance with a funder’s mandate? Is the work
adequately discoverable? Sometimes the appropriate avenue for sharing is
obvious and without pitfalls; other times, the sharing creates prickling
unease.

This session will bring together expert voices with a variety of
perspectives to discuss the challenges, the signposts for appropriate
handling and perhaps even concessions encountered in the usage, protection,
and preservation of digital content.
