About
the January 9, 2013, NISO Webinar – Behave Like a Startup: Adapting Your
Organization to Rapid Change

During
a recent BookExpo meeting, a publishing company executive asserted, “Any company
that isn’t behaving like a start-up is doomed.” What does this mean in the
context of service organizations such as libraries, as well as businesses that
serve the library industry such as publishers and vendors? How can large
institutions be more nimble, act more quickly, adopt new tech more easily? What
can be learned from startups and what can be avoided?

About
the January 23, 2013, NISO/DCMI Webinar – Translating the Library Catalog
from MARC into Linked Data: An Update on the Bibliographic Framework
Initiative

In
May 2012, the Library of Congress announced a new modeling initiative focused on
reflecting the MARC 21 library standard as a Linked Data model for the Web, with
an initial model to be proposed by the consulting company Zepheira. The goal of
the initiative is to translate the MARC 21 format to a Linked Data model while
retaining the richness and benefits of existing data in the historical
format.
In
this webinar, Eric Miller of Zepheira will report on progress
towards this important goal, starting with an analysis of the translation
problem and concluding with potential migration scenarios for a broad-based
transition from MARC to a new bibliographic framework.

About
the March 6, 2013, NISO Webinar – New Models for Journal Article Access
(Evolving Trends in Collection Development – Part 1)

No
subscription? No problem! New developments in journal article
access.

Libraries and their users are gaining options for accessing
articles without subscribing to the journals that contain them. Likewise,
publishers are maximizing their content’s exposure by taking advantage of new
forms of distribution. Novel access models include journal article rental
through services such as DeepDyve, quick electronic delivery through the
Copyright Clearance Center, and direct purchase from individual publishers. Join
NISO for a webinar that will explore new developments in journal article access
and these developments’ implications for libraries, end users, and
publishers.
