Term: NISO

Founded in 1939, the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) is a non-profit association accredited by ANSI with the mission to identify, develop, maintain, and publish technical standards to manage and provide access to trusted information. Its nearly eighty voting members represent a variety of groups involved in the organization and distribution of information, including libraries, the information technology and publishing industries, and the vendor community. NISO maintains the Z39 series of standards, and makes the standards it creates freely available on its website.
