The purpose of this forum is to provide a platform for players in the life-cycle of electronic resources (libraries, content providers, service providers, and aggregators) to share and discuss strategies and experiences in leveraging standards to improve development and discovery of electronic resources. Impacts of standards developed by National Information Standards Organization (NISO) and/or other national standardization organizations will be discussed. It provides the opportunity to get input and explore effective approaches to encourage wide application of standards by libraries/librarians and players in the industry. It also promotes more collaboration on standardization for the electronic resources ecosystem at national and international level. Ultimately, improved electronic resource discovery and access would benefit end users and maximize returns on investments for all stakeholders.

2018 CEAL ERMB Workshop: Conformance & compliance: Ensuring the standards engine is running

Time: 1:00 PM – 2:50 PM, Tuesday, March 20, 2018
Venue: George Washington University Libraries — Churchill Center
Speaker: Nettie Lagace, Associate Director for Programs, NISO-National Information Standards Organization

To raise the awareness and promote application of NISO e-resources related standards and recommended practices, this workshop will convey to all stakeholders (collection and metadata librarians, vendors, etc.) the general reasons for establishing the standards as well as the benefits of compliance and the consequences of not complying with specific standards. As users increasingly utilize e-resources, the responsibilities of vendors/publishers and librarians in all service areas have been more or less impacted. Come and learn why we all need to embrace NISO standards and recommendations, the essential tools which improve user discovery and access to e-resources.

In addition, the recently-developed recommended practice, NISO RP-25-2016, *Outputs of the NISO Alternative Assessment Metrics (Altmetrics) Project* will be introduced. A Q&A session will be provided for the opportunity of interaction with the speaker.
