Although not all of us may be consciously aware of them, our work as professionals providing information services benefits immensely from the production, adoption, and promotion of information standards. This session will focus on two examples from the Asia-Pacific region of the value that standards bring to information work.

Andrew Davies of Standards Australia will highlight how the use of the STS: Standards Tag Suite has made their work more efficient and allowed for the development of much smarter interfaces for users of Standards.

Jesse Xiao of the University of Hong Kong will share his experiences of using information standards in a scholarly communication / research services context, including author profiles, research output management, open data and open research, etc.
