OpenURL Workshop: Learn how the new OpenURL standard puts the thinking
back in linking!

NISO Standards Committee AX has just released the trial implementation
version of the OpenURL. This standard enables context sensitive linking.
Tools built on the OpenURL offer a unified interface to the diverse
collections that a library hosts locally or has rights to externally. 

This one-day meeting is organized by the Center for Scholarly
Communication at the Palmer School of Library and Information Science of
Long Island University and by NISO. Its aim is to introduce the library
and publishing communities to the path-breaking concepts at the heart of
the OpenURL and show you the tools that are facilitating a host of new
library services and will undoubtedly lead to new business
opportunities. This is your chance to learn from the visionary pioneers
behind this technology.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 13
WHERE: METRO; 57 East 11th St, New York, NY 10003
COST: $99
