ICYMI: April Open Teleconference, KBART

April 2024

What The Segment Covered!

In NISO's second Open Teleconference of the year, our Keondra Bailey was joined by KBART Standing Committee co-chairs Robert Heaton and Noah Levin, with support from KBART member Ben Johnson to discuss progress on Phase III.

KBART is a NISO Recommended Practice that facilitates the transfer of holdings metadata from content providers to knowledge base suppliers and libraries. The first iteration of the KBART Recommended Practice, which focused on journal holdings, was published in 2010; a 2014 "Phase II" revision extended support to metadata for e-books, conference proceedings, consortial subscriptions, and some open access publications. Starting in early 2020, the KBART Standing Committee has been hard at work on research and actions around elements of its Phase III work with subgroups addressing areas of work such as clarifying the recommendations, revamping the mission statement, determining new fields, and creating a new file guide.
