NISO and PALCI Extend Partnership for 3-Year Consortium Agreement

The Partnership for Academic Library Collaboration & Innovation (PALCI) and NISO (National Information Standards Organization) entered into a consortium agreement giving NISO Library Standards Alliance (LSA) membership to all PALCI members for 3 years starting in January 2022. According to the press release, “The agreement will provide library staff at 73 PALCI member libraries with full LSA membership benefits, including: free access to NISO’s educational webinar program; unlimited participation in NISO Working Groups/Standing Committees; and discounted registration for all non-webinar events, including the annual NISO Plus conference.”

“Several PALCI libraries, as well as PALCI itself, have been involved in our work over the years, and this new agreement will broaden and deepen that engagement,” says Todd A. Carpenter, NISO’s executive director. “It will also increase the diversity of LSA member voices, enabling us to better ensure that our standards and other efforts reflect and meet the needs of a wider range of libraries.”

“PALCI libraries are thrilled to extend our engagement with NISO through this agreement. NISO is a natural partner for us as we implement and advocate for standards-based library infrastructure and approaches that will enhance library collaboration and innovation,” says Jill Morris, PALCI’s executive director.
