 *Just a few NISO educational webinars left in 2017! Are you set up to
listen in?*

There’s no need to wait until January to learn something new; there are
still a few NISO webinars left this year. NISO’s fee structure allows your
organization to gather an unlimited number of staff in a conference or
classroom setting to view the event on the day of the broadcast. Access to
an archived recording of the event is always included, regardless of
membership status.

*NISO Two Part Webinar:  *

*Wednesday, November 15: Engineering Access Under the Hood, Part Two *

*S**ave 25% on the November two-part webinar by* registering online for
both segments
<https://www.regonline.com/registration/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1915732>! You
can listen in to the archived recording of Part One well before the live
broadcast of Part Two.

The first half of this two-part webinar program (held November 1) provided
an overview of the current landscape of options available to academic
institutions for ensuring and streamlining access to materials by
legitimate users. What’s working, which technological approaches may be
outdated, and what needs to be done (research, technology upgrades, etc.)
to resolve related problems?* The November 1 (Part One)* speaker titles and
abstracts are viewable on the NISO event page

The second half of this webinar (scheduled for November 15) will discuss
the issues associated with delivering quality metadata by and to various
stakeholders. Based on comments heard at conferences and in meetings, it’s
an old issue. But what are the existing barriers to delivering reliable
metadata? What improvements might be made in the process? What stands in
the way of successful implementation?

*November 15 (Part Two):* *Engineering Access Under the Hood: Enhancing &
Harmonizing Metadata for Discovery & Use*

*Confirmed Speakers: Patricia Payton*, *Senior Manager, Provider Relations,
Proquest/Bowker*; *Scott Anderson*, *Associate Professor & Information
Systems Librarian, Millersville University*; *Marilyn White*, *E-Resource
Librarian, **Briget Wynne,** Reference and Interlibrary Loan Librarian, *
*and* *Katelynd Bucher, **Metadata Librarian, Research Library
Group, National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST)*.

*Wednesday, December 6, 2017*: *Tracing Discovery & Subsequent Use:
Harvesting and Analyzing the Data*

In 2016, NISO announced an initiative aimed at the development of best
practices for documenting and understanding users’ paths between discovery
of content and accessing the content. Did users come in from a discovery
service, Google Scholar, or some other available channel? What should that
signify to service providers? What does that mean for libraries? This
session will spotlight the size and scope of the issue as well as the
progress that may be made towards its resolution.

*Confirmed Speakers: Ken Varnum*, Senior Program Manager for Discovery,
Delivery, and Library Analytics, University of Michigan; *Peter Vlahakis*,
Product Manager, ITHAKA and *Dan Paskett*, Director, Shared Shelf Outreach
Coordinator, ITHAKA; and *Allison Belan*, Associate Director, Digital
Strategy & Systems, Duke University Press.

*NISO’s Library Standards Alliance (LSA) members automatically receive
access to all of the fourteen 90-minute webinars offered by NISO as a
member benefit. (You can check your institutional membership status **here*
