The NISO Plus conference is a continuation of the NFAIS Annual Conference, but in a new and exciting form.  Taking the 60+ year history of the NFAIS Annual conference and expanding it to contain even more of the information professions, the NISO Plus Conference is a place where publishers, vendors, librarians, archivists, product managers, metadata specialists, electronic resource managers, and many more, come together.  This year’s event will run online from 22-25 February.

Digital Science is extremely proud to be the exclusive sponsor of the 2021 NISO Plus Scholarship scheme. This enables participation by a cohort of 12-15 information professionals from groups that are otherwise under or unrepresented, both at the conference and in the community. Building on the success of the first cohort of scholarship winners from 2020, this year’s winners will have the opportunity to join NISO committees, meet with staff and Board members, benefit from mentorship and training, as well as network with each other.  Read more about last year’s scholarship awardees here.
