Continuing Resources Standards Update Forum at ALA Midwinter 2010

The Continuing Resources Standards Update Forum presents news on
developments affecting serials management at American Library
Association conferences. At Midwinter 2010, the forum will feature
Hana Levay, Information Resources Librarian at the University of
Washington and co-chair of the SUSHI maintenance committee, and  Rick
Burke, Executive Director of the Statewide California Electronic
Library Consortium (SCELC), which is implementing the ONIX-PL
standard.

SUSHI is a protocol for the automated harvesting of electronic
resource usage data utilizing a Web services framework. It is used in
conjunction with COUNTER, a standard designed to facilitate the
recording and reporting of online usage statistics in a consistent,
credible and compatible way

ONIX for Publications Licenses (ONIX-PL) is a family of standard XML
messaging protocols for exchanging licensing information that builds
on the work of the Digital Libraries Federation Electronic Resource
Management Initiative (ERMI) and NISO's License Expression Working
Group (LEWG).

This session is presented by the ALA ALCTS Continuing Resources
Section, Continuing Resources Standards Committee and is generously
sponsored by Swets.
