NISO's Recommended Practices Focus on DDA and Discovery Transparency

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) published two new recommended practices: Demand Driven Acquisition of Monographs and Open Discovery Initiative: Promoting Transparency in Discovery. Both are available for free on NISO’s website.

Demand Driven Acquisition of Monographs is intended for publishers, vendors, aggregators, and libraries that use a demand-driven acquisition (DDA) model. It provides a set of best practices for using DDA with print books and ebooks, including recommendations regarding how to choose DDA program parameters, manage MARC records, and provide long-term access to content not owned by the library. Consortial considerations and cross-aggregator implementations of DDA are also addressed.

Open Discovery Initiative aims to increase transparency across all aspects of indexed discovery services by offering guidelines to discovery service providers on linking practices, supported methods of transfer, usage statistics, and other practices. It also guides content providers on topics such as disclosing their level of participation, the minimum set of metadata elements used for indexing, and technical formats. A set of standard terms and definitions add to the proposed transparency practices.
