New ISO Working Group needs expertise

Cindy Hepfer, the ALA Voting Representative to NISO has passed on to us information on the establishment of a new working group, ISO/TC 46/SC 8/WG 9 “Statistics and quality issues for web archiving,” for which ISO is looking for participants.

Cindy notes: “If anyone knows an ALA member who has the expertise required to serve on this project and who would be willing to put in the necessary time/effort, please send me that individual’s name and contact information to forward to NISO. This will be a terrific opportunity for the right person!”

The initial meeting of the working group will be in early December, 2009.
