DEIA & NISO Standards
Thursday, February 16, 2023 2:00 PM EST
This session will explore the state of play in terms of revising and developing standards with DEIA issues in mind, with a particular focus on metadata. You'll hear about a proposed Recommended Practice to Update Author Name Changes in the Academic Publication Record after Publication as a Result of Identity Change, which has been approved as a work item by NISO members, as well as other potential areas of work - for NISO or other organizations - such as how to address offensive content in the historical literature. You will also hear about the NISO DEIA Committee's plans for embedding DEIA in NISO protocols, processes, and procedures.
