Reminder: The deadline to submit comments on the NISO draft recommended
practice Open Discovery Initiative: Promoting Transparency in Discovery is
November 18, 2013.
This draft recommended practice provides specific guidelines for content
providers on metadata elements, linking, and technical formats, and for
discovery service providers on content listings, linking, file formats,
methods of transfer, and usage statistics. The document also provides
background information on the evolution of discovery and delivery technology
and a standard set of terminology and definitions for this technology area.
It was developed by the NISO Open Discovery Initiative (ODI) Working Group
to facilitate increased transparency in the content coverage of index-based
discovery services and to recommend consistent methods of content exchange.

Initiative webpage at: www.niso.org/workrooms/odi/.
