A NISO White Paper released in September 2002 reported that libraries, content aggregators, publishers, and third party service providers are increasingly exchanging information about serials subscription. The White Paper indicated that a standard exchange format would be beneficial to all parties in the supply chain and identified ONIX for Serials as a good foundation for such an exchange format. The NISO/EDItEUR group will begin work in November 2002 and will be tasked to: o Recommend specific enhancements to the ONIX for Serials schema and documentation to support exchange of serials subscription information; o Recommend how the query/response scenarios can be accommodated within the emerging EDItEUR framework for transaction-based exchange. o Plan, organize and coordinate a pilot project involving publishers, intermediaries, and libraries to demonstrate the feasibility of using ONIX for Serials as an exchange format for serials subscription information. The Joint Working Party will be co-chaired by Priscilla Caplan, a member of the NISO Standards Development Committee and Assistant Director of the Florida Center for Library Automation, Gainesville FL and Richard Gedye, Journals Sales and Marketing Director, Oxford University Press, Oxford UK. The NISO White Paper, titled "The Exchange of Serials Subscription Information" by Ed Jones is featured on the NISO website at: http://www.niso.org. NISO is the leading accredited standards developer serving libraries and content industries (www.niso.org). EDItEUR is an international trade industry group coordinating development of the standards infrastructure for electronic commerce in books and serials (www.editeur.org).
