Thought the URC folks might be interested in this one.  I do not believe it
is available on-line.


>From niso-l:

The proposed ISO standard for Citations to Electronic Documents (DIS 690-2)
is now out for review.

You are invited to review the standard and comment. Your comments will be con-
sidered in formulating the U.S. vote on this proposed international standard.

The standard describes how to create references to electronic monographs, data-
bases and computer programs, electronic serials, electronic bulletin boards,
and email. It prescribes an order for the elements of a reference and esta-
blishes conventions for the transcription and presentation of information de-
rived from the source electronic document. Many examples illustrate the text.

The comment period closes November 15.
The cost per copy is $35.
