  19. Voted YES to Approve NISO Z39.99-201x, ResourceSync Framework Specification v.1.0 as an Ammerican National Standard - with the following comment:

    We understand that the nature of the problem being addressed may require the complexity built in to this standard - but have concerns about how difficult it may make building implementations. Perhaps a non-normative implementation guide could be created to assist implementer's in building implementations since the sheer size and complexity of the standard may make that difficult by just using the standards document itself

  20. Voted NO on the Approval of Moving ISO/DIS 5127, Information and documentation -- Vocabulary - to International Standard Status - with the following comments:

    The standard did not seem to include other types of controlled vocabularies defined in NISO Z39.19 such as pick list (or list) and synonym rings. I also do not see RDF and related new things (they do have XML, which is just a syntax, but no other RDF syntax). Therefore We think the best approach for the standard is to look at W3C Glossaries and incorporate more.

    Another resource that could be used is Metadata Registry http://metadataregistry­.org/. It included many concepts developed recent years, such as the entities defined by FRBR, FRSAD, etc.ntn
