Standards Committee


Part of the NASIG mission is to promote the development and implementation of best practices and standards. The purpose of the Standards Committee is:

  • to participate in and monitor the activities of standards-related initiatives and organizations such as NISO and COUNTER
  • to educate and inform NASIG members about the importance of relevant standards
  • to explore and develop opportunities for the NASIG membership to participate in standards development efforts
  • provide representatives to outside standards initiatives or organizations as needed.

One or more committee members will be specifically designated as NASIG’s official representative to the various groups with which we interact. For example: for NISO, two committee members will be expected to coordinate our relationship with that peer organization, including voting on ballots and other proposals on behalf of NASIG, and contributing NASIG members’ views to NISO discussions.

If you have questions you may email the Standards Committee.
