Description

**Update 24/8/17**

Due to a Northern Rail strike on 4th September, this event has been postponed. We will publicise a new date as soon as possible.


Come along to find out more about the Jisc National Bibliographic Knowledgebase (NBK), and tell us what you'd like it to do for you. The session will include an overview of the project, information on how to get involved, and the chance to ask questions and chat to other attendees.

Background

The Jisc National Bibiliographic Knowledgebase (NBK) is an ambitious project to create a large-scale UK bibliographic database, using a platform supplied by OCLC. The NBK will underpin enhanced Jisc services, including resource discovery, collections management, and cataloguing.

By building on and surpassing the functionality and coverage of Copac and SUNCAT it will more effectively support the management of library collections so that they are optimized for contemporary research and learning needs.

The NBK aims to aggregate data from all UK HE libraries, plus specialist and research libraries and other Open Access data sources, with over 200 libraries available on the NBK by 2020.

See http://blog.copac.jisc.ac.uk/2017/02/03/the-national-bibliographic-knowledgebase for more information

Who is the event aimed at?

We are keen to get input from a wide range of practitioners in the HE, specialist, and research library sectors.

If you're particularly interested in Collection Management and the NBK, you might like to consider attending the Collection Management Share the Experience@Hull event, on 7th September https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/collection-management-share-the-experiencehull-tickets-36512771683

We will be running further NBK events around the country. Please contact us (nbk.copac@jisc.ac.uk) if you'd like to suggest a venue or are able to host an event.
