NISO Virtual Conference, Researcher Behaviors and the Impact of Technology - March 25, 2020

The introduction of technologies (augmented reality, visualization screens, quantum computing, etc.) can dramatically change how research is performed as well as how the outcome of the research is presented. This event will tap into the excitement felt by researchers when they find a new technology offering greater efficiencies to their work as well as how their adoption of new technologies changes the workflow. Different communities need different tools, so this event will feature speakers from a variety of fields and sectors. Librarians, publishers, service providers, and others — including researchers themselves! — will be interested in which technologies have captured the interest of which disciplines, as well as transformed their outputs.
