With NISO Plus 21 confirmed as a virtual-first meeting, it’s time for the planning to start. Going virtual means the event can also go global. The organisers have gathered 25 fabulous information people from around the world to help craft the conference. From Australia to Brazil, they represent all NISO’s stakeholder groups — libraries, publishers, vendors, information infrastructure providers, and more. They include representatives from member and non-member organisations, Board members and other volunteers, and NISO Plus 2020 scholarship winners. Collectively, their experience covers small, medium, and large organisations, both commercial and not-for-profit.
There are strategists and scholars, librarians and technologists, product managers, communicators and more. They range from early career professionals to senior executives.
With the support of the Planning Committee, attendees can expect a truly international program, with content that is relevant to information professionals wherever in the world they work, and keynotes and speakers from every region.
