Information Standards in Practice

NISO and ISO information standards and recommended practices have been adopted by hundreds of organizations all over the world, including the examples on this page — please contact us so that we can share yours too!

Want to cite a standard?

NISO publications are all assigned identifiers or in standards parlance, designations, which are used when citing a standard. They provide details to uniquely distinguish the work and supply information on its up-to-date-ness. For ease of reading, they are not included here, but they are accessible via the links.
