Cindy needs responses for this standard by Friday, May 30.
NISO Summary: This Technical Specification is part of the ISO 23081 series on metadata for records. It focuses on the framework for defining metadata elements for managing records and provides a generic statement of metadata elements, whether these are physical, analogue or digital, consistent with the principles of ISO 23081-1:2006.[Note: Cindy points out that ISO 23081-1:2006 can be purchased from the order area of the ISO website: Part 1 can be purchased in English for CHF 96,00. ]
In the absence of other recommendations, ALA will recommend that NISO vote to approve ISO/DIS 23081-2.
