Standards and Best Practices

NASIG strongly supports those in our community working to bring order from the chaos of continuing resource management. Several efforts to create standards and frameworks for e-resource management have been successful in helping to shape workflows, licensing discussions, and data creation and transfer. We applaud their efforts. SERU, PIE-J, KBART, ONIX-PL, COUNTER, SUSHI.
