NISO will be holding a two-part webinar on September 9 & 16 to explore the
management of electronic resources.
In Part 1 of this two-part webinar, speakers will address a variety of
licensing issues. A key component to the discussion will be a focus on
the critical pieces of a license, including privacy, accessibility,
preservation, migration, and the negotiation process between a library and
a vendor.

For the second half of this two-part series, speakers will focus on
staffing issues at different types of libraries and how staff manages
integration of e-resources into workflows, as well as a discussion about
whether or not to execute a reorganization.

Scholarly communication deals with the systems and processes involved in
the creation and dissemination of knowledge. Scholars can’t help but have
to navigate the complex issues around author rights, access, costs, new
models of publishing, peer-review, and compliance with research funder
policies. These scholarly communication components are continually evolving
along with changes in technical infrastructure, the economics
of publishing, knowledge preservation, and social practice.

Learn how scholarly communication models are evolving from the authors’,
publishers’, and libraries’ perspectives. The presenters will share
and discuss their approach in adapting and navigating the issues
surrounding this topic.
