ODI Conformance Statements

Content providers, discovery service providers, and libraries are encouraged to take specific measures to assert their conformance with NISO RP-19-2020, the recommended practice 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, discovery service providers, and libraries to assert their ODI conformance to each other.

The following templates have been prepared to make publication of ODI Conformance Statements as easy as possible for stakeholders:
