Voted APPROVE with comments on ISO/FDIS 23527 Research Activity Identifier (RAID) Information Technology
Question: Do you approve the technical content of ISO/FDIS 23527 for publication?
This document defines the use and structure of the Research Activity Identifier (RAiD) system. The RAiD system includes a registry which supports the identification of research projects, i.e. projects managed in a scholarly or industrial environment which are expected to lead to specified outputs.
It also specifies the RAiD metadata record which holds key metadata relating to the identified project and indicates relationships to other entities and their persistent identifiers and metadata.
ASIST agrees with the question asked by Access Innovations:
Is there an overall plan for how all these ID’s will work together?
Voted APPROVE with Comments on ISO NP 16687 Impact Assessment for Museums
The proposed International Standard “Impact assessment for museums” is planned as a follow-up to ISO 18641 “Information and documentation – International museum statistics” and ISO 21246 “Information and documentation – Key indicators for museums”. Its purpose is to define and describe methods for assessing and measuring the impact of museums on individuals and on society.
ASIST is of the opinion that the proper course of action would be to modify and combine the existing standards in this area rather than develop an an entirely new standard
This part of ISO 25964 gives recommendations for the development and maintenance of thesauri intended for information retrieval applications. It is applicable to vocabularies used for retrieving information from all types of information resources.

The ASIST Standards Committee Voted CONFIRM on the following ISO review of some transiteration standards
Systematic Review – ISO15919:2001 Transliteration of Devanagari and Eric Indic Scripts to Latin Characters
Systematic Review – ISO 259-2:1994 Transliteration of Hebrew Characters – Part 2 Simplified Transliteration
Systematic Review – ISO 259:1984 Transliteration of Hebrew Characters into Latin Characters
Systemic Review – ISO 9985:1996 Transliteration of Armenian Characters into Latin Characters

Voted APPROVE with comments on ISO/DIS 24229, Codes for written language conversion systems
Do you approve of the technical content of ISO/DIS 24229?
The codes are devised for usage in any application requiring the expression of written language conversion systems, including transliteration and romanization systems, in coded format.
The example given included “Varia systems” with “The Wade-Giles Chinese transcription system from A Chinese-English Dictionary” from 1912. This is fine, but maybe there could be another example for the “Pinyin” which has replaced Wade-Giles system by majority of the name authorities and subject headings in the world for years.

Voted CONFIRM on ISO 2709:2008, Information and documentation – Format for information exchange
Do you recommend ISO 2709:2008 be confirmed, revised or withdrawn?
This International Standard specifies the requirements for a generalized exchange format which will hold records describing all forms of material capable of bibliographic description as well as other types of records. It does not define the length or the content of individual records and does not assign any meaning to tags, indicators or identifiers, these specifications being the functions of an implementation format.
This International Standard describes a generalized structure, a framework designed specially for communications between data processing systems and not for use as a processing format within systems.
Voted APPROVE on ISO/FDIS 15706-2, International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN) – Part 2: Version identifier
Do you approve the technical content of ISO/FDIS 15706-2 for publication?
This document establishes a voluntary system for the identification of versions of audiovisual works and other content derived from or closely related to an audiovisual work. It is based on the International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN) system defined in ISO 15706-1. An ISAN combined with the version segment specified in Clause 4 constitutes an ISAN version identifier, hereinafter referred to as a V-ISAN. A V-ISAN is a registered, globally unique identifier for versions of an audiovisual work and related content.
Voted APPROVE on ISO/FDIS 15706-1, International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN) – Part 1: Audiovisual work identifier
Do you approve the technical content of ISO/FDIS 15706-1 for publication?
This document establishes and defines a voluntary standard numbering system for the unique and international identification of audiovisual works. An International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN) identifies an audiovisual work throughout its life and is intended for use wherever precise and unique identification of an audiovisual work would be desirable. As an identifier, it can be used for various purposes such as to assist allocation of royalties among right holders, to track the use of audiovisual works, for information retrieval and for anti-piracy purposes, such as verifying title registrations.
Voted APPROVE on ISO/FDIS 15924, Codes for the representation of names of scripts
Do you approve the technical content of ISO/FDIS 15924?
This document provides a code for the presentation of names of scripts. The codes were devised for use in terminology, lexicography, bibliography, and linguistics, but they can be used for any application requiring the expression of scripts in coded form. This document also includes guidance on the use of script codes in some of these applications.
