Altum, Inc. has joined the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) as a voting member, entitling it to vote on and assist NISO with deciding which standards to develop.

“We’re excited to join NISO as a voting member, and look forward to partnering with leaders across the organization to shape the next generation of standards that will support open research and open science,” said Steve Pinchotti, CEO of Altum
Leaders of over 100 organizations serve as voting members of NISO, a further 100+ are Library Standards Alliance members, and over 500 experts and practitioners serve on NISO working groups, committees, and as officers of the association.
“As a voting member of NISO, Altum will be at the forefront of shaping and adopting the latest information standards for research organizations, ensuring that Altum’s products are built based on the industry’s best practices and always meet customers’ current and emerging needs,” Pinchotti said.
“We are delighted to welcome Altum as a NISO voting member,” said Todd Carpenter, NISO’s Executive Director.
