*Block This Day and These Times for NISO’s Upcoming Virtual Conference! *

*Wednesday, April 18, 11:00am - 5:00pm (Eastern Daylight) *

*Information Freedom, Ethics and Longevity*

There are the capabilities that technology enables. There are the fair and
appropriate activities that a society agrees upon for the use of that
technology. How best to strike the correct balance between the two?  For
the various stakeholders active in the information community, this is
neither a frivolous nor a simple question. This virtual conference will
touch upon such concerns as net neutrality, information security and the
potential for manipulation in the digital environment. Registration for
this event will include access to a Training Thursday webinar.
