Webinar - Data, Data Everywhere

Join NISO for our November webinar Data, Data Everywhere featuring Migration
and System Population Practices.

November 11, 2009
1:00 - 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

About the Webinar:
The scope and scale of metadata repositories continues to grow, with
increasingly heterogeneous data and complexity both on the ingest side
(e.g., bibliographic metadata) and in inter- and intra-organizational
exchange of usage, patron, purchase, and accounting data. While data format
and exchange standards are a given, how do policies, implementations, and
standards interact? What are some examples of effective alignment of
standards, policies and implementation, and what challenges remain?


Data quality, policy, and large-scale data flows
How do regional consortia establish and implement policies to allow them to
cope with increasing amounts of data in a widening variety of formats?

-- Hilary Newman, Vice President of Implementation Services, Innovative
Interfaces, Inc.

Academic library perspective
Individual research libraries provide local, customized services for their
audiences that are based upon large quantities of data -- hopefully of high
quality and supported by easy-to-use tools and processes provided by vendors
and consortia. What are the successes, stress points, and failures from the
perspective of the academic library?

-- Maribeth Manoff, Coordinator for Networked Service Integration,
University of Tennessee, Knoxville

-- Robert McDonald, Associate Dean for Library Technologies, Indiana
