As our collections become increasingly electronic, standardization of publishing and tracking practices also becomes increasingly critical in order to better serve our users. This session will describe new, updated, and emerging standards and recommended practices that are designed to support the publishing, identification, and retrieval of electronic materials. It will provide an overview of standards such as Supplemental Journal Article Materials, Standardized Markup for Journal Articles, KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools), DDA (Demand Driven Acquisitions), PIE-J (Presentation & Identification of E-Journals), and EPUB (it’s not an acronym…); how they relate to the work of a broad spectrum of attendees; and particularly why we should care!
The objectives of the session are to demystify the alphabet soup of standards and to highlight the practices that, when implemented, will help us to better serve our users. The audience will be encouraged to ask questions and to discuss. Attendees can expect to learn about a focused, relevant set of standards and best practices and how they directly affect the attendees and their work.
