Johann and all,


I'm glad NISO reached out so quickly-- I just emailed Nettie and Oliver yesterday. Oliver and I worked on the charge for the working group (over a year ago), which as I'm sure you've seen includes prominent mention of GOKb. I'm on D2D and it was my oversight to not notice there was no GOKb representation on the WG's membership.


Perhaps you (or your designee) would be able to join their calls in the meantime, before we meet and designate someone officially? When I shared the workplan (which on Monday went out for approval with D2D so no longer being revised) with Kristen Wilson she noted a few issues, especially the importance of including management (ERM) use cases.  Their timeline shows the information gathering stage ends this October, so input from GOKb may be useful as soon as possible.

    Hi all,


    we've got an invitation to participate in the NISO KBART Automation working group. I've answered Nettie that we will discuss this in our upcoming meeting and added it as a topic to the agenda.


    Best regards,
