NFAIS - Promoting Communication and Collaboration Across the Global Information Community.


The National Federation of Advanced Information Services ( NFAIS™) is a global, non-profit, volunteer-powered membership organization that serves the information community - that is, all those who create, aggregate, organize, and otherwise provide ease of access to and effective navigation and use of authoritative, credible information.

Member organizations represent a cross-section of content and technology providers, including database creators, publishers, libraries, host systems, information technology developers, content management providers, and other related groups. They embody a true partnership of commercial, nonprofit, and government organizations that embraces a common mission - to build the world's knowledgebase through enabling research and managing the flow of scholarly communication.

NFAIS exists to promote the success of its members and for more than 50 years has provided a forum in which to address common interests through education and advocacy.
