International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION- December 03, 2001 Endorsement of the Bath Profile The International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) announces its �Endorsement of the Bath Profie. The Bath Profile is an international Z39.50 specification supporting library applications and resource discovery. Version 1.1 of the Profile, released in June 2000, with minor clarifications in February 2001, is endorsed as an ISO Internationally Recognized Profile (IRP). In endorsing the Bath Profile, the ICOLC realizes that standards organizations, libraries, consortia, database vendors, and integrated library system vendors will need to work together to realize the potential of Z39.50. The international Bath Profile, if broadly adopted and incorporated into more detailed national, regional, provincial, and state agreements becomes a valuable part of the solution. The complete Endorsement of the Bath Profile with endorsing library consortia and additional information about the ICOLC can be found at http://www.library.yale.edu/consortia . Support for the Bath Profile is already endorsed by 68 library consortia from around the world. More consortia endorsements will be added as received.
