ERMI2: What is it?
Data Dictionary: Revise the ERMI element set and make them more machine friendly.
License Expression: Working with NISO, EDItEUR, and a large group of stakeholders, work together towards a license expression standard.
Training and Advocacy: Working closely with ARL, and building on the success of the license mapping workshop held at last summer's ALA conference, offer a series of license mapping workshops and build a set of training documents to help librarians map license terms in ERM systems.
Usage Data: We are working with NISO on a Web service protocol for moving COUNTER reports from a vendor site into an ERM or other system. We call this the Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI). We also plan to develop a set of functional requirements for reports.
