NISO RP-17-2013, Institutional Identification: Identifying Organizations in the Information Supply Chain


This Recommended Practice describes the work done by the NISO Institutional Identifier (I²) Working Group to define the requirements for a standard identifier for institutional identification in the supply chain. It also provides background on the collaboration agreement between the NISO I² Working Group and the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) International Agency to use the ISNI standard (ISO 27729) and the ISNI-IA’s infrastructure for institutional identification, rather than publishing a separate standard for institutions. It concludes with the recommended practices and the metadata for applying the ISNI to institutions.
