New NISO Project To Bring Indexing Standard Up To Date

Library Technology Reports - Fri, 2019-06-14 18:16
(June 14, 2019). Voting Members of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) have approved a new standardization project, Criteria for Indexes. This work, intended to become an ANSI standard to replace the Z39.4 standard that was withdrawn in 1997, will provide a modern approach to guidelines for the content, organization, and presentation of indexes used for the retrieval of documents and parts of documents. NISO published TR 02-1997, a technical report entitled Guidelines for Indexes and Related Information Retrieval Devices, in 1997 as a replacement for the Z39.4 standard, Basic Criteria for Indexes, when consensus could not be reached on the standard's publication. This technical report is now quite out of date and not suited for use in many electronic environments.
