Two new videos from CNI’s recent membership meeting have been posted:

Assured and continued access to the scholarly record is an essential task. In Stewardship of the Digital Scholarly Record & of Each Nation’s Published Heritage, a panel of speakers, representing the international community and lead by Peter Burnhill of the University of Edinburgh, take stock of the achievements, strategies, and current priorities for addressing the challenges of content custodian.

Building the Better Ebook and Beyond brings together several initiatives that explore the evolution of the monograph, including JSTOR Labs (convened at Columbia U.), which examines how the discovery and user experience could be improved by applying data visualization and design thinking techniques to digitized monograph files, and projects at the U. of Michigan and Emory U. that explore how publishers can best support and sustain digital scholarship.
