Registration is open for the next NISO (National Information Standards Organization) virtual conference, on the important and timely topic of effective data management. It will last from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM CDT on Wednesday, September 29. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Kristi Holmes, Director of Galter Health Sciences Library & Learning Center at Northwestern University.

Data management is increasingly seen as an essential component of scholarly and scientific research. This includes the need for robust data collection strategies, and for the appropriate management, handling, and preservation of data. But is this being achieved? What practices are seen as worthwhile and fit for purpose? Which processes need improving? Do researchers have access to the right tools and services? What new challenges are emerging?

Registration (discounted for NISO members) includes an unlimited number of attendees from your organization, so sign up now–and spread the word to your colleagues!
