NISO Webinar, Reset - What Are Our New Priorities?

To regain the ground lost in the wake of COVID19, we must first determine how the information community has been affected? What is the long-term outlook? Only then can we determine our priorities for rebuilding.  This roundtable discussion brought together thought leaders from various sectors to discuss what they see as the long-term changes in the information marketplace. What critical products and services are needed? Will the workforce be on-site or home-based? Can stakeholders agree on how access should be handled moving forward? No one can be entirely sure of what the priorities will be, but a robust exchange of ideas and possibilities is a good starting point.  Confirmed participants in this roundtable include Mary Lee Kennedy, Executive Director, ARL; Cliff Lynch, Executive Director, CNI; Hilary Seo, Dean of Library Services, Iowa State University; and Stephen Rhind-Tutt, President, Coherent Digital, LLC.
