“OpenURL — Knowledgebase quality — Sign-on authentication — Scholarly linking recommendations — Usability metrics — Cross-device accessibility
If you’re dealing with any of these issues in providing services to your users, then you’ll want to attend NISO’s one-day forum on DISCOVERY TO DELIVERY: CREATING A FIRST-CLASS USER EXPERIENCE on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center, Atlanta, GA. NISO educational forums are routinely praised for their excellent selection of speakers representing a diversity of viewpoints across the scholarly information community and the small size which provides opportunities to network with speakers and other attendees.
ABOUT THE FORUM
There is information everywhere today and access to it relies on a seamless discovery process that offers all appropriate options to the unassisted information seeker. The journey between discovery and delivery is accomplished with a variety of differing technologies and processes, many of which depend on a reliable and accurate knowledge base of coverage information. As demands on these technologies change and expand, NISO supports a variety of efforts to strengthen and improve them. This forum will explore new and innovative ways to meet user’s needs and expectations for discovery and delivery of content in the networked world.
