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.
