NISO

NISO represents the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) internationally in the International Organization for Standardization's technical committee for information and documentation, which is why NISO standards have ANSI/NISO designations. For example, OpenURL is the ANSI/NISO Z39.88 standard (see OpenURL). See ANSI and ISO.
