Please join us on Monday, June 14, from 3-4 p.m. (eastern) for a free teleconference where NISO Managing Director, Todd Carpenter, will give a summary of the May meeting in South Korea of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 46 on Information and Documentation. Three of the TC46 subcommittees also met in Korea. NISO is the Secretariat for SC9, Identification and description, where many of the most widely used standards in our community (ISBN, ISSN, ISMN, ISTC, etc.) originated. There are a number of international standard development projects underway that are of interest to the NISO community, including the DOI system, a two-part thesaurus standard, and the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI), to mention a few. This teleconference is a great way for you to get a synopsis of everything that is happening in ISO TC46 and ask any questions.
This Open Teleconference is part of an ongoing series of monthly calls held on the second Monday of each month as a way to keep the community appraised of NISO’s activities. It also provides an opportunity for you to provide feedback to NISO on our activities or make suggestions about new activities we should be engaging in.
