August 19, 2010 – Much of what is happening in the standards world seems to be evolving along parallel but separate paths.  We are trying to publish the varied efforts as they become known to us here in TaxoDiary.

ISO/DTR 23081-3 Information and documentation – Managing metadata for records – Part 3: Self-assessment method’

A draft technical report ballot has been released for this item. Technical reports are considered to be entirely informative. The two previously published parts are both standards. The first part addresses “Principles” and the second part covers “Conceptual and implementation issues”. The third part provides guidance on conducting a self-assessment on records metadata in relationship with the creation, capture and control of records. It includes a checklist that is designed to identify an organization’s current state of records metadata readiness.
