The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has released their 2020 calendar of educational events. If you are a member, your development budget won’t take a hit. If you aren’t a member, maybe now is the time to consider it.

Starting in January 2020, there are two quality offerings to start your year off in the right direction.

On, Wednesday, January 15th, the 90-minute webinar titled, Identity Management and Authentication Strategies is offered. Licensed content or other sensitive forms of data comes with some level of risk. Managing that risk is the core of this webinar. 

On Wednesday, January 22nd, the webinar, Talking to Your Organization’s IT Group When You’re Not an IT Person, will be offered. It isn’t a safe assumption that everyone in library or information services are a techie. However, libraries may not always be blessed with their own dedicated information technology unit. What might be the best tips and tricks for communicating library needs and concerns to IT groups? 

The NISO Education Committee, with input from the NISO membership, has pulled together a comprehensive program with relevance to professionals working across all sectors of the information community. As a member benefit, in 2020, automatic access to all 14 webinars will be provided to all organizational members of NISO.
