The OpenURL Framework for Context-Sensitive Services Standard  provides a means of describing a referenced resource along with a description of the context of the reference. Additionally it defines methods of transporting these descriptions between networked systems. It is anticipated that it will be used to request services pertaining to the referenced resource and appropriate for the requester. The OpenURL Framework is very general and has the potential to be used in many application domains and by many communities. Concrete instantiations of the various core components within the framework are defined within the OpenURL Registry . The Registry is managed by a Maintenance Agency, as defined in Appendix A of the Standard. During the ballot and public review period of the Standard, the content of the Registry was static and had been pre-defined by the NISO AX Committee. There is also an experimental registry where components under development are held. It is possible to register further items. Initially there were two formats for ContextObject Representations defined in the OpenURL Framework, Key/Encoded-Value and XML. This document provides implementation guidelines for the Key/Encoded-Value Format, concentrating mainly, but not exclusively, on components from the San Antonio Level 1 Community Profile (SAP1).
