After Access—Libraries and Digital Empowerment [Closed] Forum/Update/Assembly Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 06
Description :

The Digital Inclusion Survey and its predecessors document the technology infrastructure public libraries leverage with and for our communities. This is complemented by Pew Research about how Americans are using technology and libraries and reports from the Aspen Institute, ALA and IMLS. Together these resources point to expanding roles for libraries in addressing technology adoption and application, as well as access, needs. This invitation-only program will explore these themes and identify specific actions for advancing digital inclusion through libraries in partnership with other national and local entities.

NISO/BISG 9th Annual Forum: The Changing Standards Landscape Access or Ownership: Evolving Business Models and Your Institution Exhibitor session, Program Moscone Convention Center
3012 (W)
Description :

Standards are critically important elements that can make any business process more efficient. The traditional print subscription services model, the process of handling standing book orders by libraries, and even the process of buying, selling, and consuming e-books through a variety of platforms all require standardized business processes to efficiently get content from publishers through vendors to libraries and ultimately to patrons.

As our community adapts to changing paradigms regarding service and ownership models specific to digital publishing, both the library and publishing communities need to consider the implications of these changes. Print content distribution was centered on a sales model, where the transfer of ownership of a physical object was a core element of the transaction; this is often not the case with digital assets. Generally, content is licensed and access is limited; by rights, by term, or by community served. The implications of this shift are quite broad both for content providers as well as libraries. What are the business practices, roles and responsibilities, on both sides of the new digital exchange that all parties need to be aware of and incorporate to ensure efficient information exchange?

If You Publish Linked Data, Will they Come? Program Moscone Convention Center
