**Apologies for cross posting**

September looks to be a busy month for NISO, with two virtual events — our
monthly webinar on Accelerating Scholarly Communications and Dissemination
(free for members) and a virtual conference on Building Access, Openness,
and Sharing
(discount for members) — as well as the NISO Plus Forum
<https://niso.plus/forum/>, our first in-person event since the inaugural
NISO Plus conference in February 2020. We hope you’ll be able to join us at
one or more of these!

Monthly webinar — free for NISO members

Accelerating Scholarly Communications and Dissemination

Wednesday, September 14, 11.00am - 12.30pm Eastern Daylight Time (US/Canada)

Given the rise of remote working and international collaboration, it’s not
surprising that so many researchers have expanded their use of applications
like Slack, Mastodon, or Zoom. But what is the potential impact on
scholarly communications? In this roundtable discussion, our speakers will
brainstorm the use of these new communication tools, and envision what the
long-term benefits and drawbacks might be. Speakers to be confirmed.

(includes unlimited attendees from your organization) — free for NISO
members; recording will be shared with all registered attendees

NISO Plus Forum <http://niso.plus/forum/>

Tuesday, September 20, 8.30am - 5.00pm, AGU office, Washington, DC

The NISO Plus Forum <https://niso.plus/forum/> is a new, in-person event
that will provide a bridge between the virtual NISO Plus conferences—an
opportunity to continue some of the conversations we started at the last
conference and connect them to the next one in concrete and meaningful
ways.The theme is Metadata: Structures, Exchange, Identifiers, and we will
examine each of these areas through a series of small group discussions and
activities. By the end of the day, we will have identified 5-10 topics to
be moved forward for future NISO work, including as topics for a metadata
track at the NISO Plus 2023 conference (February 14-16, 2023). To ensure
that we keep user needs front and center of our discussions, you’ll also
hear from three researchers with very different perspectives—Dr. Ana Heredia
(consultant), Dr. Kathryn Kaiser (University of Alabama, Birmingham), and
Dr. Diana Marsh (University of Maryland). More information, including the full
program <https://niso.plus/forum-schedule/> and COVID policy, is available
on the NISO Plus website <https://niso.plus/>.

Building Access, Openness, and Sharing

Wednesday, September 28, 12.00 - 4.00pm Eastern Daylight Time (US/Canada)

What do we need in order to build a research environment where streamlined
digital access is the norm? Addressing technical debt is one challenge, but
what are some of the others? All of us have an interest in furthering the
expansion of knowledge, so what innovations, what approaches have the past
two years proven to be most effective? And what does the future hold?
Focusing on both platform technology and the policies that govern those
platforms, this virtual event will look at some of the practices and
policies that are critical to supporting expanded access and sharing of
scholarship. Speakers to be confirmed.
