Jisc will be delivering more sessions than ever at this year’s UKSG conference in Glasgow. The scale reflects the breadth of our activities and where we are engaged on behalf of or in partnership with you, our members to deliver on your needs.
Our sessions include a number on open access from Liam Earney’s plenary with the National Library of Sweden on licence negotiation and the transition to open access to Chris Keene and Bas Cordewener exploring the challenges of open scholarship. Graham Stone explains the latest iteration of TERMS incorporating open access management alongside Peter McCracken from Cornell University and Jill Emery from Portland State University Library.
Other sessions demonstrate how Jisc is helping to support teaching and learning in FE and developing new funding models with a crowd-sourcing approach to digitisation. We also highlight how our analytics work is helping libraries to deliver impact through data visualisation initiatives. We also explore the negative impact for libraries and their users of poor quality metadata in the electronic resource supply chain. And finally there are two lightning sessions highlighting our approach to redeveloping our library support services and we present our Liberate service, an easy and affordable solution to managing access to digital content. We also have an additional session on delivering the NBK vision in partnership with OCLC and you can register for this special NBK session via Eventbrite.
See our Events page for full details of all our sessions and come and visit us during the conference at our exhibition stands 47 & 49. Come and speak to Siobhán Burke at the stand, where you can find out more about our transformation programme, and sign up to help us with our development to improve our services.
