All NISO standards and technical reports are now available for free
in downloadable pdf files from the NISO website (www.niso.org).

 From the NISO homepage (http://www/niso.org) click on the NISO Press
icon, and then click on Standards, Books and Software. You can search
for the title you want or review a list of all the approved and
published NISO standards and technical reports.

"Very few standards developers have elected to make their standards
available for free on the web," noted NISO chair Don Muccino. "NISO
is clearly taking the lead in making its standards freely available
to support the widest possible dissemination of our publications.
The NISO Board believes that free distribution and easy access to our
standards supports implementation."

This new NISO service is made possible by NISO's seventy-five Voting
Members and the libraries supporting the NISO Information Standards
Forum.

NISO will continue to sell its standards in hardcopy both on the web
and through NISO Press Fulfillment.
