Abstract

The ASIST Standards Committee has been organizing standards updates sessions at each ASIST annual conference. The purpose is to promote the awareness of standards issues by major standards bodies including ISO, NISO, and W3C. Meanwhile, the sessions usually bring in a focused panel to address an array of important issues around standards and applications in which the ASIST community would be interested. This year the panel will be about standards and alternative approaches enabling representing and disseminating data as linked data. Standards covered include the second edition of Web Ontology Language (OWL2) of the W3C, activities of ISO /IEC JTC 1/SC 34 (for Document Description and Processing Languages standards related to structured markup languages), projects at ISO TC46/SC9 (Identification and description), W3C’s RDFa which is actively being refined and has generated significant fresh usage activities, and NISO I2 (Institutional Identifiers).
