Several publishers have publicly declared their conformance (see http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/credo-gale-ieee-and-sage-declare-conformance-with-nisos-open-discovery-initiative-300103269.html) with NISO’s Open Discovery Initiative recommended practice (RP-19-2-014). Coverage of licensed content by library discovery systems has not yet reached its full potential, so cross-sector discourse and transparency is needed to ensure librarians have all the information they need to make an informed decisions about the search technologies they provide to patrons. Bring your questions and concerns to this open panel discussion with four publishers about their ODI conformance statements and checklists.
