NISO’s Updated Draft Standard on Criteria for Indexes

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) announced December 14, 2020 that the Z39.4 Criteria for Indexes Working Group has released its draft standard for public comment. It replaces the original ANSI/NISO Z39.4 standard (Guidelines for Indexes and Related Information Retrieval Devices) and is an updated and expanded version of NISO’s Guidelines for Indexes and Related Information Retrieval Devices (a technical report, TR02-1997).

This updated draft NISO Z39.4 standard provides guidelines that better meet today’s requirements for the content, organization, and presentation of indexes used for the retrieval of information, including those used for electronic searching, regardless of the type of material indexed, the indexing method used, the medium of the index, or the method of presentation for searching.

The draft Z39.4 standard will be available for public comment through January 31, 2021. Anyone with an interest in indexing – authors, editors, publishers, vendors, and others – is encouraged to share their feedback.

«Formalizing the new NISO Z39.4 as a standard that is applicable for both print and online publications will ensure that it is seen as authoritative and encourage wider industry support», – said Marti Heyman, Executive Director, Metadata Strategy and Operations at NISO member organization OCLC, and a Co-chair of the Z39.4 Working Group. – «Wider adoption will, in turn, lead to a better, more consistent end-user experience».

NISO Associate Executive Director, Nettie Lagace, added, «We are delighted that this important standard has now been fully updated to better serve the needs of today’s indexers and index users. We look forward to receiving additional input from the community through this comment period, which the Working Group will use to improve the final version of the standard, planned to be approved by ANSI in 2021».
