events, and we are delighted to once again offer you the chance to buy
three and get three free

for all.

All virtual conferences run from 12:00pm - 4:00pm (ET, US/Canada), and

regular breaks, as well as plenty of time for Q&A. The program for 2022 is

resources into the creation of digitized collections, with varying degrees

Text and Data Mining

This virtual conference will provide an “explainer” for information
professionals tasked with supporting researchers who are just beginning to
engage with TDM, and wondering how to pull the data they need, how it is
structured, and how they can expect to engage with it.

Open Source and Community-Supported Infrastructure

To ensure long-term success, community organizations need to consider which
of the spectrum of models currently in use  will best sustain key
information infrastructure. This virtual conference will bring together a
group of experts to address these and other questions about the expansion
of open source and community-supported infrastructure.

Building Access, Openness, and Sharing

What do we need in order to build a research environment where streamlined
digital access is the norm? Focusing on both platform technology and the
policies that govern those platforms, this virtual event will look at some
of the practices and policies that are critical to supporting expanded
access and sharing of scholarship.

Building an Equitable, Global Research Community

Irrespective of discipline, it’s essential that the high-quality research
being undertaken everywhere is brought to the fore. The speakers in this
virtual conference will offer plenty of food for creative thought in terms
of innovation — though they may have more questions than answers!

More information about all virtual conferences, including speakers and
topics, will be available on our events page nearer the time. Make sure
your organization’s staff can be part of all these important and timely
discussions by booking our special Buy Three, Get Three package
now! Further discounts are available for NISO members and students, and all
registrants will receive a recording of the conference after it ends.

We hope to see you there!

Best wishes from the NISO Team
