Full Text Available Online (Free)
The news issue focuses on organization and people identifiers.
From a Note on the NISO (National Information Standards Organization) Homepage:
Guest Content Editor, Helen Henderson, Managing Director at Information Power Ltd. has assembled an excellent overview of the major standards and initiative on the special issue theme of Organization and People Identifiers. As she states in her introductory letter: “Identifiers have always been essential standards in libraries and publishing. Content identifiers, such as the ISBN, are well established, but institutional and personal identifiers are much newer, the need having emerged as more and more content is available electronically.” Both the entire issue and individual articles may be freely downloaded.
