BISG talks to libraries

One of the great things about Michael Healy's directorship of BISG is his attentiveness to issues in the library market. As former director of the ISBN agency in the UK, Michael's got a lot of library experience, and it's terrific to see him applying that to BISG, which has traditionally focused on the bookselling market. For too long in the book industry, there's been this weird wall between the two sectors, and as technology invades and makes new things possible, it seems that the wall should be breached...and BISG seems poised to do that.

At any rate, BISG has teamed with NISO to give a presentation at ALA on Friday. It's called "The Changing Standards Landscape: Creative Solutions to Your Information Problems", and essentially it will tackle how new developments in digital asset management and distribution are affecting the library world. In addition to Michael and Todd Carpenter of NISO, one of the speakers there will be Carolyn Pittis from Harper, who has given many presentations on how she's using new technologies (widgets, XML) to expose more Harper books to more people.

Cool beans!
