ISO's TC46/SC9 committee (Information and documentation/Identification and
description) is in the final stages of approving a new standard, ISO 17316,
Information and documentation - International Standard Link Identifier
(ISLI). This standard will require a Registration Authority for its
implementation and ongoing operation. A Call for Candidates inviting
proposals from qualified organizations interested in serving as the
Registration Authority for ISO 17316 has been issued. Deadline for proposals
is September 1, 2014. 

 

The ISLI standard specifies a new identifier of links between entities (or
their names) in the field of information and documentation. These entities
may be documents, media resources, people or more abstract items such as
times or places. By identifying links between entities that are related to
each other they can, for example, be rendered jointly. As more linked data
applications are implemented, it is anticipated that many more uses for the
ISLI will be found.

 

The detailed Call for Candidates is available here:

All qualified and interested candidates are encouraged to respond.
