- The Open Discovery Initiative (ODI) was created in 2011 to improve participation among content providers in the then-novel web-scale discovery services.
- The issues addressed by the ODI included metadata standards, content indexing, and availability of licensed content in discovery services.
- After adoption of the recommended practice in June 2014, a new Standing Committee has been formed to address unfinished business and implementation.
- A challenge for the ODI is finding the right balance between the needs of commercial partners and library customers."
