The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) recently announced the publication of a revision to the Knowledge Bases and Related Tools (KBART) Recommended Practice (NISO RP-9-2014). The original recommended practice, which was issued in 2010, provided all parties in the information supply chain with straightforward guidance about metadata formatting.
The revision includes the more granular, complex issues that cause problems in metadata supply, including consortia-specific metadata and metadata transfer for open access publications, e-books, and conference proceedings. More information is available on the NISO website. NISO is a non-profit association accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) that identifies, develops, maintains, and publishes technical standards to manage information in our changing and ever-more digital environment.
To provide quality taxonomy development services, it has never been more important to approach knowledge organization based on accepted and shared standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help you generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
