NISO Seeks Comments on New Recommended Practice

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) announced that its new recommended practice draft, Protocol for Exchanging Serial Content (PESC), is available for public comment until Dec. 5, 2014. The draft provides best practices for managing all of the elements of digital serial content packaging and exchange so that content providers and content recipients understand what was delivered and received.

“As part of their missions, many different organizations—libraries, archives, indexing services, content aggregators, publishers, and content creators—need to exchange and work with digital files that make up serial content,” says Leslie Johnston, co-chair of the PESC Working Group. “When digital serial content is exchanged, the files that comprise a serial ‘publication’ are packaged together in some manner and these packages can be highly variable. Currently, there is no standardized packaging format that addresses the level of specificity and granularity needed and the PESC Recommended Practice was developed to fill this gap.”
