ODI Conformance Checklist Templates

Content providers and discovery service providers are encouraged to take specific measures to assert their conformance with NISO RP-19-2014, the recommended practices of NISO’s Open Discovery Initiative. These measures are voluntarily made by each organization, in an effort to increase transparency and communications around pre-indexed or “web-scale” library discovery services. The ODI Conformance Checklists enable standardized methods for content providers and discovery service providers to assert their ODI conformance to libraries, discovery services, and other industry stakeholders.

The following templates have been prepared to make publication of ODI Conformance Statements as easy as possible for content providers and discovery service providers:

Please send completed statements or questions to odi@niso.org.  There is a Content Provider FAQ available as well.
