In this session, members of the NISO Discovery to Delivery Topic Committee will discuss NISO projects, recommendations and standards dealing with hot topics around discovery and access of electronic content. Presentations will include updates on open access discovery, specifically the recommended practice Access and License Indicators (ALI) and discussion of a new project proposal regarding discoverability of open access material. In addition, we will discuss two new projects. The first involves automatic transfer of packages and institutional entitlements from information providers to knowledge bases for the identification of institutional access rights using the KBART recommended practice. The second work item refers to link origin tracking that allows information providers, particularly publishers to track originating access to their content. We will include examples of how this NISO work will help the different industry stakeholders in their everyday work. We hope for a lively discussion and feedback from the audience.

The mission of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) is to foster the development and maintenance of standards that facilitate the creation, persistent management, and effective interchange of information so that it can be trusted for use in research and learning. NISO brings together publishers, libraries, and software developers to collaborate on mutually accepted standards — solutions that enhance operations today and form a foundation for the future.
