At the Charleston Conference, a NASIG supporter suggested to me that I should approach NISO (National Information Standards Organization) on promoting their webinars to NASIG members. This conversation led to a discussion with Todd Carpenter, the managing director of NISO while still in Charleston and since that time a couple of email exchanges. I’m very pleased to report that NASIG will be partnering with NISO for their series of 2009 webinar offerings.
NASIG members will be able sign up for a NISO webinar at the member rate of $79 per session instead of the $99 per non-member rate. The webinars are to be offered on the second Wednesday of each month. Each month in 2009 NASIG will provide a listing of the upcoming webinar on the announcements forum as well as on the “what’s new” section of the NASIG web site.
Furthermore, NISO will offer packages of buy 3-get-1 free and buy the entire package and get 6 free (12 for the price of 6). NASIG members will similarly be able to buy the packages at the NISO member rate.
NOTE: All webinars are sold on a per-site basis, so there can be multiple people watching the same feed (on a projector, for example).
Our list of program events is online at: http://www.niso.org/news/events/2009/
This is an exciting new collaboration and an added bonus to NASIG members!
