NISO Bibliographic Roadmap Development Project
In November 2012, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation generously provided the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) with a grant to support an initiative to develop a community roadmap that will help support movement toward a future bibliographic information exchange ecosystem. The goal of this project is to collectively determine the needs and requirements of the library, higher education, and non-profit networked information communities to ensure they are able to use and exchange bibliographic data in an increasingly networked, linked data environment.
Over the course of the next nine months, NISO will host one face-to-face meeting in the United States and several global webinars, as well as organize at least three working group efforts during the periods between webinars. These meetings will be conducted to explore priorities and coordinate the requirements of key communities including: libraries of all types including national libraries; technologists such as those involved in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) projects; library system providers; and other international standards development organizations. The end result of this work will be a report that will identify exchange points where standards development is needed and document suggested areas where functionality testing should be performed. It should help pinpoint at a high level the development priorities and coordination points needed over the next 24-36 months.

January 17 Launch Teleconference (OPEN) - Call Recording (MP3-approx.60 minutes)
NISO hosted an open community teleconference to launch this project on Thursday, January 17 at 9:00 ET (UTC -5:00). The purpose of the call was to introduce the community to this project, outline our goals, answer any questions and begin to map out planning the project and identify dates and locations for the in-person meeting that the Mellon Foundation has funded. We expect the call will take about 60 minutes.
The call was recorded and a recording is available via the link above.
