This program will provide an update on several NISO projects potentially of interest to serials librarians, including PIE-J (Presentation and Identification of E-Journals), ODI (Open Discovery Initiative), KBART (KnowledgeBases and Related Tools), and OAMI (Open Access Metadata and Indicators). The projects are at different stages in their creation, publication and revision lifecycles, but all require community understanding and input. Participants will receive practical information on how the initiatives affect their daily work and how their experiences can shape the creation and uptake of consensus-based community standards in the library and information industry.
