    Description:

    This technical report describes all the risks and issues that may arise when managing records using cloud services. It covers issues and concerns relevant to all types of cloud, i.e., public, private, or hybrid.

    Comments and Corrections:

    We think the issues addressed here are important but the document could use some editing /clean up as there are several cases where meaning is obscured.

    A few examples:

    – (p. 18) para. just before 6.5 —  “The disadvantage is that the clients have to be in charge of payment to maintain consistency of the records stored in all IaaS’s. ”      Perhaps they mean synchronizing vs payment, not sure
    –  Figure 12 “RM agency can manageRM application which reduces feasible problem…”      — meaning unclear
    –  (p. 20) 7.1  — The risks followed by inherence of SOA in the cloud”   —  perhaps they mean “inherent to use of SOA in the cloud”
    –  7.3 “diagnose the risk due to multi-tenancy for each layer”    —  true but that needs more elaboration to be clear
    –  7.3 “cloud lock-in”   —  a point,  but should be better illustrated
    –  8.1  – list of legal risk factors —  last item in list appears to be unfinished
    –  8.1.2  –  “ambiguity that ‘data can be safe in one country but not in another’ is created”    could use rewording

    General comment on the document —  link between control/configuration of metadata of the administrative type  and authentication risk factors should be made more clear.

Not is it a repository platform or storage method.

    Committee members had concerns that the identifier doesn’t include a repository or some resolution process at this time.

    Others questioned if there has been environmental scan work of the best practices and how existing cases are done, e.g., at funding agents, academic units, and consulting companies. Does this proposal emerge from, or collaborate with the Research Data Alliance (RDA)? Is NISO any kind of core constituent in this case? (NISO is very strong voice about ORCiD and could have a good expert pool for the RAiD.)

    Question:

    Description:

    During the plenary meeting in Lisbon, it came to light that the ISTC RA was disbanded in early 2017. Following a lengthy discussion about the status of the RA, the standard, and the project, it became clear that the revision work needed to be halted. While the status of the project was listed on the agenda, a decision to withdraw the revision must be taken by CIB. Therefore, this ballot is being circulated to withdraw the project, while the ISO CS and the leadership of ISO TC 46/SC 9 attempt to find candidates to step in as a new Registration Authority for this standard. If no candidate to assume this role is identified, per the ISO DirectivesISO CS will withdraw the standard.

  38. Voted YES on A minor revision of ISO 15511:2011 ISIL

    Question:

    Do you support the minor revision of ISO 15511:2011 (ISIL) for FDIS ballot?

    Description:

    International Standard Identifier for Libraries and Related Organizations (ISIL)

    Danish Standards (ISIL Registration Authority) has submitted a revised version of ISO 15511 to the TC 46/SC 4 secretariat. Following changes to the previous edition of the standard have been made:

    Contact information for the Registration Authority has been updated

    – Case sensitivity in ISIL codes has been clarified.
    – Usage of characters in ISIL codes has been made more clear.
    – URI of the ISO 3166 country codes has been updated. The new link is to the ISO Online browsing platform.
    – Terms and definitions have been taken from ISO 5127:2017 when applicable, and the term organization and its definition has been added.
    – Furthermore, in accordance with current ISO rules for wording in standards:
    – This International Standard is replaced by This document.
    – Notes under 3 Terms and definitions are replaced by Notes to entry

    The case sensitivity –related clarification may have an impact on some implementations. In the current edition of the standard it is not absolutely clear if the library code is case sensitive or not. The attached draft leaves no doubt:

    ISIL country code and non-country code prefixes are case insensitive, but the library code is case sensitive. For instance FI-Ht and FI-HT are two different ISILs, but FI-HT and fi-HT are two variants of the same ISIL.

    However, even this change is just a clarification and does not alter the substance of the standard and therefore the ISIL RA regards the revision as minor. The intention is to launch an FDIS vote soon.

    In order to guarantee that the standard remains up to date, ISO/TC 46/SC 4 made the following decisions in its plenary meeting last May:

    Resolution 2018/04 – Minor Revision of ISO 15511:2011 – Information and documentation – International standard identifier for libraries and related organizations (ISIL)

    ISO/TC 46/SC 4

    – requests Danish Standards to submit a proposal for a minor revision of ISO 15511:2011 for FDIS ballot to the ISO/TC 46/SC 4 Secretariat by 2018-06-15
    – re-activates the working group WG8 Library Codes
    – issues a call for a convenor of this working group
    – requests the ISO TC 46/SC 4 Secretariat to launch a call for experts”

    Question:

    Do you have any comments on the proposed draft to include prior to formal ballot?

    Description:

    SO/WD 690, This document gives guidelines for the preparation of bibliographic references.

    Question: Do you have any comments on the proposed draft to include prior to formal ballot?

    Comments:

    5.2.3 e) 1) — additions to names — combines both date range distinctions with roles , might want to cite a source of conventions for forms of roles

    For corporate names roles are given but no larger example of source lists – city, country used, but other types (musical group, spaceship, ship ) there are examples of name ambiguity in various parts of the document

    5.4.3 see 6

    6 – title – 6.1.4 and 6.1.5

    Long title – ellipsis issues troublesome since no method for truncating evident.

    Subtitles — furnishing “essential information about the resource” is only good enough if one knows what other similarly titled resources can only be distinguished by the subtitle. (draft version, final version, interim report might only be distinguished by the subtitle info, etc.) Another case of trickiness of ellipsis and cases of generic title .

    8.1 media types are noted to be “only examples” — these can be critical differences in resources, perhaps reference to some standard source of descriptors?

    16.6 Cartographic materials — might want to mention details such as relief and colors as these often distinguish very similar items.

    16.7 Audiovisual materials

    16.7.3 Creator — “director is preferred” — not always adequate especially in music or film, to distinguish different intellectual works. For instance, Bernstein’s Mass, directed by , still occurs w notably at least 3 main cantors. “Lead” as well as director often needed to clarify.

    16.9 Music

    Refers to written Or recorded music – the example looks specific enough, but music is dominated by generic titles and more discussion and examples seem needed here. No discussion of collected works issues.

    16.12 Archival materials

    Because the Title is often something hopelessly vague (e.g. “Correspondence”) might be good to stress value of fullness of citation .

    Annex C – Examples of bibliographic references

    C.16.2 — aggregation – gives examples of items within a collection. Distinction of the same item contained in different collected works is overlooked.

    Comments:

    ASIST is concerned that ISO is developing standards that are not really standards. This document is an example of that. It mandates nothing as required and has not conformance requirements. It would probably make a decent guide or technical report but falls short of the threshold we believe a standard should meet
