Saturday afternoon I attended the NISO Training session arranged by Mary Alice Baish and sponsored by the OBS, TS, and CS SISs. NISO standards can be offputting because they are often complex and seem almost to be written in another language at times :-) But Karen Wetzel helped us see that the effort is worthwhile because in the long run standards are there to make our work easier and more efficient. Karen is determined to do whatever she can to help AALL participate more in the NISO standards process.
Stay tuned, you'll be hearing more about NISO. Thank you Karen and Mary Alice!
