NISO Newsline

NISO Newsline is an executive summary of noteworthy articles pertaining to Information Standards and is distributed to the NISO community each month. Our editorial staff monitors nearly 7,000 newspapers, business publications, Web sites, national and international wire services, and other periodicals and summarizes significant articles into an easy-to-read summary. NISO, the National Information Standards Organization, a non-profit association accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), identifies, develops, maintains, and publishes technical standards to manage information in our changing and ever-more digital environment. NISO standards apply both traditional and new technologies to the full range of information-related needs, including retrieval, re-purposing, storage, metadata, and preservation. Founded in 1939, incorporated as a not-for-profit education association in 1983, and assuming its current name the following year, NISO draws its support from the communities it serves. The leaders of over 70 organizations in the fields of publishing, libraries, IT and media serve as its voting members. Hundreds of experts and practitioners serve on NISO committees and as officers of the association. Throughout the year NISO sponsors cutting-edge programs on standards issues and exploratory workshops on emerging topics. These discussions often lead to the formation of committees to develop new standards.
