  2. Voted YES on Conversion of ANSI/NISO Z39.23-1997 (R2009) Standard Technical Report Number Format and Creation to Stabilized Maintenance

    Stabilized maintenance removes a standard from the requirement for five-year periodic reviews. It is used for standards that address mature technology or practices and are not likely to require a revision

  3. Voted YES on Conversion of ANSI/NISO Z39.41-1997 (R2009) Placement Guidelines for Information on Spines to Stabilized Maintenance

    Stabilized maintenance removes a standard from the requirement for five-year periodic reviews. It is used for standards that address mature technology or practices and are not likely to require a revision
