The working group that produced these recommendations would strongly
encourage anyone and everyone to submit comments and feedback.
Altho NISO is a US based group, I'd note that most of the membership
of the WG are publisher representatives, and most of them operate
internationally at this point.
As for US campuses getting on the bus... Let's cross our fingers ....
And on behalf of US campuses, we'd like to thank the UK Federation for
all their work getting a large number of publishers to support
