Congratulations Nancy!
I was looking for any information online about the standard and could 
not find a landing home page or any documentation. Naturally, I turned 
to Wikipedia and had a look there and two articles already mention LAF/GrAF:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/TC_37
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_National_Corpus

Maybe we could consider creating a Wikipedia page about LAF/GrAF as a 
web reference? Recently, I started to collect use cases and possible 
compatible formats for NIF and when I made a section for LAF/GrAF, I was 
not sure which page or publication I should point to. So I left the 
section empty :(
http://wiki.nlp2rdf.org/wiki/Use_cases_and_requirements#lafgraf

Normally, a Wikipedia page (if not directly usable for citation) lists 
among the first places on the reference list the publications which 
provide the best overview.

What do you think about? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAF/GrAF
See below for a rough guideline, what you need to observe, when creating 
an article. I included all the mailing lists (also nlp2rdf list) in case 
people want to join in writing the article ;)

All the best,
Sebastian

Some useful Wikipedia guidelines

Conflict of interest:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Plain_and_simple_conflict_of_interest_guide
(Best to state your bias right away on your user page, see: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:SebastianHellmann )

WP has a starting an article page 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Starting_an_article)  and also 
an Article Creation Wizard: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Article_wizard
which is good, because it points you to their Notability guideline:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability
This is normally what is checked strictly when new articles are created.
I didn't find anything specific about ISO standards.
