This Month: The Latest on Standards


SUSHI: What It Is and Why You Should Care
If you still think that the word “sushi” refers only to rice-based Oriental delights, then it’s time to get to know this industry’s version. To tech librarians, SUSHI is an acronym that stands for Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative. It was designed to simplify the task of gathering usage data about electronic resources. See how this fresh standard can make your work easier!

A Dozen Primers on Important Information Standards
To bring you up-to-date on as many standards as possible, the editor in chief commissioned a dozen primers. In each, a subject expert explains one standard in just one page. This directly fulfills part of CIL’s mission, which is to deliver practical articles that make technology understandable. This value-added section covers these applications: Atom, COinS, MADS, MARC 21 / MARCXML, MIX, MXG, OpenSearch, PREMIS, RESTful HTTP, unAPI, XMPP (aka Jabber), and ZeeRex. Find out what these acronyms stand for and what these apps can do for you.
