NISO Publishes Updated Metrics Data Dictionary for Libraries and Information Providers

“On July 29, the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) released the fifth edition of the standard ANSI/NISO Z39.7, Information Services and Use: Metrics and Statistics for Libraries and Information Providers—Data Dictionary. The Z39.7 Data Dictionary assists the information community in the identification, definition, collection, and interpretation of statistical data used to describe the current status and condition of libraries in the US. The standard absorbs many of the de facto definitions established in various national surveys and data collection programs to provide a body of valid and comparable data on American libraries.” (via ARL)
