Information Standards Quarterly Issue on "2012 Year in Review and State of the Standards"

Information Standards Quarterly has published a special issue on "2012 Year in Review and State of the Standards."

Here's an excerpt from the announcement :

"NISO has a very active standards and recommended practices development pipeline with more than 20 active projects," explains Nettie Lagace, NISO's Associate Director for Programs. "In 2012, we published two new standards, the revision of a two-part standard, two new recommended practices, two recommended practice revisions, and a new white paper. We also launched three new initiatives and were awarded two new grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. These are all described in more detail in this issue of ISQ."

"NISO's role as the U.S. Administrator for the ISO TC 46 Committee on Information and Documentation and the Secretariat for the subcommittee on Identification and Description ensures that our community has an active role in international standards development as well," said Cynthia Hodgson, ISQ Managing Editor and a consultant for NISO who helps manage the ISO work. "Our members not only vote on these ISO standards ballots, they also provide critical comments to the development working groups and volunteer to be members of these groups to help shape these international standards. This issue summarizes the work of TC 46 and its four subcommittees during 2012."
