Abstract: In areas where the need for standards is known but the specific areas and requirements are ill-defined, NISO often undertakes pre-standards work to identify and prioritize the standards or recommended practices that should be developed. In the past year and a half, NISO has undertaken two such initiatives. The first, started in December 2012 with a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, was the Bibliographic Roadmap Project to develop a community roadmap for extending the usability of the new bibliographic framework into the global networked information environment. The second, begun in June 2013 with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, was the Alternative Assessment Metrics (Altmetrics) Initiative to explore, identify, and advance standards and/or best practices related to a new suite of potential metrics. Both of these projects completed their initial phase of community input and assessment and produced reports with recommendations of further actions NISO should take. This article summarizes the work of these initiatives and the recommendations.
