You'll Want to Take a Look At. . . .
Two new proposed international standards are now out for ballot:
*The ISIL standard (DIS 15511) is a 16-character variable length code to
uniquely identify libraries and related organizations. The standard can
accommodate existing national library identification systems.
Significance of the ISIL: For the first time we will have an agreed-upon
international identification system for libraries
Voting members are encouraged to review the standard and send comments (if
any) to email@example.com by September 27, 2002.
*CD 21127, A Reference Ontology for the Interchange of Cultural Heritage
Information was developed by TC46/SC4/WG9 chaired by Nick Crofts. The
standard is based on the framework drafted by CIDOC the international
organization focusing on the information and IT needs of museums. Tony Gill
at RLG was the U.S. expert contributing to this standard.
Significance of this standard: It provides a framework for the exchange of
information about museum holdings and provides the basis for
interoperability in the cultural heritage community. Voting members are
encouraged to review the standard and send comments (if any) to
firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1.
