NISO Approves Two-Year OpenURL Quality Initiative

This proposal was reviewed and approved by the Business Information Topic Committee on Tuesday, December 8, 2009. As this project focuses specifically on the testing and validating of the metrics used to determine OpenURL Quality, and not on the OpenURL standard itself (ANSI/NISO Z39.88-2004, ANSI/NISO Z39.88 - The OpenURL Framework for Context-Sensitive Services), it was determined that this work falls under the umbrella of the Business Information Topic Committee. However, this committee will work closely with the Discovery to Delivery Topic Committee -- which provides oversight to the related OpenURL standard and NISO/UKSG KBART Recommended Practice -- to keep them informed on progress and to solicit feedback on the work when needed.
