Welcome to Focus on Standards, the NISO Library Standards Alliance (LSA) member newsletter. This newsletter covers NISO news, events, and activities for our members and is emailed each January, May, and September.

Educational Events
  • NISO offers subscription packages for our virtual conferences, which include the NISO Training Thursday webinar
  • You will receive recordings of all the events that you are registered for if you can't attend the day of the event
  • If you set up a generic e-mail account, a colleague can still access our webinars even if you are out of the office on the day of an event
  • You can set up a NISO webinar in a classroom so that all interested colleagues can be in one place for continued discussion and engagement
The 2017 Educational Programs will be available in October 2016 and will be e-mailed at that time.

Should you have suggestions for topics and/or speakers for NISO events, please contact Jill O'Neill, Educational Programs Manager at
