The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) is a United States non-profit standards organization that develops, maintains and publishes technical standards related to publishing, bibliographic and library applications. It was founded in 1939, incorporated as a not-for-profit education association in 1983, and assumed its current name in 1984. NISO approved standards are published by ANSI. Unlike most other ANSI standards, many NISO standards are freely available from its web site. Designations (names) of NISO standards all start with "ANSI/NISO Z39." In addition to formal standards, NISO also publishes recommended practices, technical reports and other consensus documents.
