10  SIP = Standard Interchange Protocol  Communications protocol first published by 3M in the late 1990s  Primarily used to connect self-service circulation kiosks to integrated library systems  Version 3 published in January 2012

11  3M approached NISO in January about transitioning SIP to NISO  New Work Item proposal was submitted; approved in mid April  Press release issued in early June  Working group is now forming

12  From the work item proposal:  “the goal of this work item is to take the currently existing SIP version 3.0 and shepherd it through the NISO standardization process”

13  SIP published as Draft Standard for trial use with no or only minor changes  Recommendations for significant revisions before SIP can be published as a NISO standard  Recommendation that SIP should not be published as a NISO standard

14 Working group will form under the Discovery to Delivery Topic Committee Participants will be representatives of: – ILS vendors world-wide – Organizations that develop library applications and devices that communicate with the ILS – Librarians interested in interoperability between the ILS and 3 rd party systems Anyone interested in being part of the working group should contact NISO
