NISO Strategic Directions Document NISO will focus and prioritize its efforts in relation to a strategic map. To do this NISO will maintain a strategic map of the information landscape that pinpoints features of the landscape most critical for the creation, persistent management and exchange of trusted information in support of research and learning.
This is important for two reasons: The community that NISO serves is changing rapidly. It needs better ways of identifying and prioritizing its requirements and actions which might address them. NISO has scarce resources. They need to be deployed effectively.
Standards help you link services into solutions Identification What are we talking about? Formats and Structures What is it? How is it constructed? Transaction How shall we talk about it? Policy What are the rules we follow?
