Notes

Abstract: The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) sponsored this study to gain a better understanding of its target markets. As the national standards organization for the communities of libraries, information services, and publishers, NISO's goal for supporting this study was to understand state library agencies' concerns related to information technology standards. The study provides NISO with detailed information about the current use of standards by state library agencies and a set of recommendations to better serve the standards needs of state library agencies. Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA) endorsed the study since the data collected would assist its members in awareness of what each state library agency is doing with standards as well as the standards issues identified by the agencies. The study benefits COSLA by suggesting appropriate leadership opportunities for state library agencies in statewide standards policy development and deployment. The study also benefits the agencies by providing a compilation of their standards policies and procedures, and identifying barriers and best practices related to information technology standards. The structure of this report consists of a number of narrative sections and a set of appendixes with supporting information.
