DCMI Standards Community

Evolving role for DCMI Standards Working Group

After the meeting of the DCMI Standards Working Group at DC-2005 in Madrid, the DCMI Advisory Board approved a proposal to shift responsibility for DCMI's activity as the Maintenance Agency of formal standards from the Working Group to the DCMI Directorate. In this new context, Leif Andresen will continue his role as liaison between the DCMI and standards bodies such as ISO (for ISO 15836), NISO (for Z39.85), and IETF (for RFC 2413 and updates). In 2006, the DCMI Standards Working Group will focus on producing guidelines for national standardization and on helping to coordinate a TC46/SC4 meeting in February 2006. Leif Andresen will continue as chair of the working group.
