Notes

Abstract: This report was commissioned and supported by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO). The dynamic pace of technology change challenges all organizations to identify and select standards on which to base mission-critical programs and services. State library agencies face particular challenges because of the increasing demands that publicly supported libraries provide access to increasing quantities and varieties of networked, digital and paper-based information resources and services. State library agencies are in a unique position to influence the adoption and implementation of standards to support statewide library resource sharing. This study, undertaken in 1998, attempted to bridge the gap of information and understanding about the current situation of state library agencies' use, opportunities and issues related to technical standards.
