Serials Subscription Information

NISO has released a white paper on The Exchange of Serials Subscription Information.
NISO commissioned this White Paper to help the organization think through the current needs and prospects for successfully developing a standard format for exchanging serials subscription information.

Increasingly libraries, content aggregators, publishers, and third party service providers are exchanging serials subscription data. Indeed, in the last five years, several new businesses have been started to provide libraries with accurate information about the serials to which they subscribe via aggregations.

They are seeking comments on the paper.
