Research infrastructure is costly to build — and to maintain. Systems require investment and ongoing maintenance for the community to really benefit from and trust them. This month’s virtual conference, on Open Source and Community-Supported Infrastructure, will bring together a group of open source experts and advocates from libraries and other organizations to discuss how to best sustain key information infrastructure. What’s working, what’s not?  What are the best practices for working across organizational boundaries? How can community leaders encourage the commitment needed to ensure sustainability as well as development? And more…

This virtual conference takes place from 12.00 - 4.00pm Eastern Daylight Time (US/Canada) on Wednesday, August 24. Speakers include: Marshall Breeding, Library Technology; Kristen Eschenfelder, University of Wisconsin; Arran Griffith, LYRASIS; Evviva Weinraub Lajoie, University at Buffalo; and Peter Murray, Index Data.

Registration for Open Source and Community-Supported Infrastructure is now open, with discounts for NISO members, students, and retirees. Organizational registration includes unlimited attendees from your organization.

We very much hope you can join us for this virtual conference!

Best wishes
