We are excited to announce our educational programming for 2021
We’ve got something for everyone next year: from library publishing to
innovative workflow systems; from preprints to ebook collections; and from
open research to meaningful metrics. And we’ve also simplified the
registration process, by switching to the popular Eventbrite platform!

Monthly webinars

In 2021, we will be offering 12 monthly webinars which, as always, are free
for staff from NISO member organizations. We will be continuing to hold our
2021 webinars at the earlier time of 11.00am - 12.30pm Eastern Time (US and
Canada), to enable wider participation from people in Europe, the Middle
East, and Africa, both as attendees and speakers.

Our first webinar of 2021, on Wednesday, January 13, will focus on Library
and University Publishing Operations
Featured participants in that roundtable discussion include among others Emma
Molls of the University of Minnesota Press and Erich van Rijn of the
University of California Press.

with Owning,
Licensing, and Sharing Digital Content
