If you're dealing with any of these issues in providing services to your
users, then you'll want to attend NISO's one-day forum on DISCOVERY TO
DELIVERY: CREATING A FIRST-CLASS USER EXPERIENCE on Tuesday, March 23, 2010
at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center, Atlanta, GA. NISO educational
forums are routinely praised for their excellent selection of speakers
representing a diversity of viewpoints across the scholarly information
community and the small size which provides opportunities to network with
speakers and other attendees.

ABOUT THE FORUM

There is information everywhere today and access to it relies on a seamless
discovery process that offers all appropriate options to the unassisted
information seeker. The journey between discovery and delivery is
accomplished with a variety of differing technologies and processes, many of
which depend on a reliable and accurate knowledge base of coverage
information. As demands on these technologies change and expand, NISO
supports a variety of efforts to strengthen and improve them. This forum
will explore new and innovative ways to meet user's needs and expectations
for discovery and delivery of content in the networked world.
