New Standards for Networked Reference Services

Mark Needleman, Donna Dinberg

Presented at ASIST 2003 Annual Meeting -- Humanizing Information Technology: From Ideas to Bits and Back (ASIST AM 03 2003), Westin Long Beach, Long Beach, California, October 20 - 23, 2003


NISO (National Information Standards Organization) is developing a protocol for networked reference services. The intent of the protocol is to promote the interoperability of disparate online and networked reference systems. This session will provide an overview of the work of the committee developing the protocol including the motivation for its development, technical details of the protocol itself, and the implications it may have for reference services in the future. Following their presentations, panel members will solicit input and feedback from ASIST members to help inform the work of the NISO committee as development of the protocol goes forward.
