Continuing Resources Standards Update Forum at ALA Midwinter Sunday
January 25, 2009, 10:30-Noon.

The Continuing Resources Standards Update Forum presents the latest
news on developments affecting serials management at American Library
Association conferences. At Midwinter 2009, the forum will feature
Peter McCracken, co-chair of the Knowledge Bases and Related Tools
(<>KBART) working group of UKSG and NISO, and
Ted Koppel, co-chair of the Cost of Resource Exchange
(<>CORE) NISO working group. The
KBART seeks to improve the transfer of quality information to support
OpenURL, and CORE defines a protocol for machine-to-machine transfer
of financial information between Integrated Library Systems and
Electronic Resource Management Systems. Both initiatives will help
libraries manage resources more effectively from purchase to access.
The session is presented by the ALA ALCTS Continuing Resources
Section, Continuing Resources Standards Committee and generously
sponsored by <>Swets.
