*NISO Forum: The Future of Library Resource Discovery*

NISO will host a two–day meeting to take place in *Baltimore, Maryland on
October 5 & 6, 2015* on *The Future of Library Discovery*
<>. In February
2015, NISO published a white paper commissioned from library consultant
Marshall Breeding by NISO's Discovery to Delivery Topic Committee. The
in-person meeting will be an extension of the white paper with a series of
presenters and panels offering an overview of the current resource
discovery environment. Attendees will then participate in several
conversations that will examine possibilities regarding how these
technologies, methodologies, and products might be able to adapt to changes
in the evolving information landscape in scholarly communications and to
take advantage of new technologies, metadata models, or linking
environments to better accomplish the needs of libraries to provide access
to resources.
