As our collections become increasingly electronic, standards play an increasingly important role not only in the work of librarians but also in that of publishers. This session will describe standards and recommended practices that are designed to support the publishing, identification, and retrieval of electronic materials, including KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools), the DOI (Digital Object Identifiers), and EPUB (not an acronym...). What are they, what do they do, how do they relate to the work of a broad spectrum of attendees, and particularly why we should care. The presenters are co-chairs of the NISO (National Information Standards Organization) Content and Collection Management Topic Committee. The objectives of the session are to demystify the alphabet soup of standards and to highlight practices that 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.
