Conference presentation, "KBART Phase 3: Can KBART Evolve to Meet the Ever-Changing E-Resources Landscape?", presented at the NISO Plus Conference 2020 on February 25, 2020 in Baltimore, Maryland.


This is an interactive session! If you are involved in e-resources management or discovery from the point of view of a publisher, knowledge base vendor, or library then this session is for you!

  • If a library buys an article, and it isn’t discoverable, does it really exist? How can rights be properly attributed to part-of-whole items (articles, chapters, episodes, etc.)? Can this be done through KBART? Should it be?
  • The community has asked for XML as a format for KBART delivery. What problems are you trying to resolve by implementing XML?
