Education Committee

Background and Description

The NISO Education Committee was first formed in early 2007 in response to a strategic restructuring. In order to respond to its broad constituency and their diverse needs, NISO strives to provide wide-ranging and robust education and training sessions. In addition to bringing in outside expertise and perspective, an education committee formed of individuals from diverse communities allows NISO to separate the content development -- the main focus of this group -- from the organizational and budgetary aspects of planning education programs and meetings.

The Education Committee is responsible for determining the topical focus of educational programs, setting an agenda, and recruiting speakers. In addition, the Committee will identify other opportunities for NISO to educate and inform the information communities about its work.

If you are interested in participating in future events or have any suggestions or questions, please contact the committee chair or members, listed below.
