Thanks for the notice about the NISO Webinar.

What practical relationships might be possible between library name authority records and ISNIs? Could NAF records be used to generate the ISNI? Would that help library data transfer from the MARC container and escape from its limited domain? Conversersely, could ISNIs be added to NAF records?


If VIAF is used to get ISNI started then we would have the VIAF<->ISNI relationship for many VIAF records, which in turn relates ISNI to NAF, so there is at least the possibility of adding them to NAF records and the expectation that given a NAF record for which there is an ISNI, you would be able to look it up using VIAF.
