The Changing Standards Landscape
An Annual Standards Forum Co-Hosted by NISO

For the seventh consecutive year, NISO and BISG co-host The Changing Standards Landscape during the 2013 American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago.

This program will explore how the publishing and library communities are facing the new digital marketplace, with a special focus on the standards that underlie the e-book supply chain. Rather than concentrate on differences and divergent needs, this forum will highlight the commonalities between publishers and libraries and what each group can learn from the other. In this way, we hope to draw out where cooperative approaches can solve common problems.

Roger Schonfeld, Program Director for Libraries, Users, and Scholarly Practices, ITHAKA, will present on User Engagement and Patron Needs from 3:30 – 4:00 pm.
