NISO Webinar, Building and Ensuring Long- Term Resilience, January 12, 2022

How adaptable have organizations and institutions in the information community proven themselves to be — in terms of COVID-19, and also in general during this period of technological and social change? How well are associations, government agencies and other funders, academic institutions, and other stakeholders managing? To what extent are they willing to innovate, whether through policy or practice? This roundtable will bring together industry professionals and observers, to offer their insights on the impact of disruption, and to share their success stories for negotiating change. Confirmed speakers for this event include among others: Roger Schonfeld, Director of the Ithaka S+R Libraries, Scholarly Communication and Museums Program Ithaka; Denise Stephens, Dean of the Libraries, University of Oklahoma; Alix Vance, CEO, AIP Publishing; and Jaime Wittenberg, Assistant Dean for Research & Innovation Strategies, University of Colorado - Boulder.
