Using the registry, a namespace authority can register specific types of URIs for the public namespace(s) it controls. The recently proposed "info" URI scheme enables the URI referencing of selected categories of legacy information-asset identifiers. NISO, the Maintenance Agency for the "info" Registry, has delegated responsibility to OCLC as the Registry Operator and prototype developer.
Agencies interested in designating "info" URIs must submit proposals for approval. More information on the registration process is available on the "info" URI Web site
