NISO Studies Link Sources for Library Searches

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) approved the development of a Recommended Practice for Tracking Link Origins in a Networked Information Environment. “As libraries strive to improve the ways in which users access their collections, gaining a definitive understanding of where a user began his or her library search before ultimately arriving at library-licensed content is an important factor for library staff in determining the value of a platform and how to allocate resources,” the press release states. The recommended practice will offer effective and scalable options for content hosts and individual libraries to determine original link sources. Anyone interested in joining the project’s working group should contact NISO for more information.

For more information, read the press release.
