September is a very busy month at NISO. There’s an exciting event almost
every week. See below for specifics on events discussing artificial
intelligence, preservation of audio and visual materials, and establishing
sustainability for Open Science and OER.

*Implementing FAIR Data for People and Machines: Impacts and Implications*

*Jointly Sponsored by CENDI, NISO/NFAIS, RDA-USA and NAS*

*Wednesday, September 11, 2019,  9:00 am – 4:00 pm.*

*Venue:* National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Room 100
500 5th St NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20001 USA

This special one-day workshop for data and information professionals, is
focused on the wave of activities related to making data “FAIR” (Findable,
Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).

The one-day event focuses on the implementations, ultimate impacts, and
implications, especially as data is made FAIR for people and machines.

*A complete agenda with the full roster of confirmed speakers for the day
may be viewed* *here*

*Note: This is an on-site event only. Online registration will close

NISO Webinar

*Preservation and Archiving of Digital Media*

*Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 1:00pm – 2:30pm (US, Eastern)*

Libraries have long collected audio and video content in varying formats
housing those materials in special archives and collections. However,
unlike the static documents that have been digitized for purposes of
enabling Web access by users, some collections of audio and video content
may not have received the appropriate attention and resources that ensure
long-term preservation. This session will look at a variety of such
collections and associated archiving initiatives focused on what is an
increasingly at-risk set of materials.

Confirmed speakers for this event include: *Kira M. Sobers*, Digital Media
Coordinator, Smithsonian Institution Archives; *Clifford B. Anderson*,
Associate University Librarian for Research and Learning, Vanderbilt
University; *Edward M. Corrado*, Associate University, Naval Postgraduate

NISO Virtual Conference

*Sustaining Openness: Ensuring the Long-Term Viability of Open Science,
OER, and More*

*Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 12:00 Noon – 4:00pm (US, Eastern)*

Current thinking is that scientific research should be readily
reproducible, discoverable, and openly accessible. There is also
significant drive to develop open educational resources in the interests of
easing economic burdens on student populations. The challenge then for
libraries, content providers and platform providers is how best to
implement strategies, technologies and practices in support of those

But there are questions that must be addressed in discussing open science,
open educational resources, open access monographs, etc. What supports are
necessary in bringing this open approach into reality? What may be feasible
in building an inclusive and collaborative knowledge infrastructure in this
environment? What are key elements or best practices? What fiscal models or
arrangements might be needed to ensure sustainability? Which sector
(academic, government/public, commercial, etc.) is best positioned to
muster the necessary resources?

Confirmed speakers for this event include among others *Mark Hahnel*, CEO
and Founder, Figshare; *Kathy Essmiller*, Visiting Assistant Professor,
Oklahoma State University; *Mike Taylor*, Head of Metrics Development,
Digital Science; *Judy Ruttenberg*, ARL Program Director, Association of
Research Libraries.
