Presentation on the ISO 639 family of language codes

At the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA) in Baltimore there was a presentation by Rebecca Guenther of the Library of Congress (who is also Rotating chair of the ISO 639 Joint Advisory Committee) about ISO language code standards. Her slides are now posted on the page of the LSA's Technology Advisory Committee and may be of interest to those wishing to know more about the ISO 639 family of standards, the most prominent of which for linguistics is ISO 639-3, which attempts to be comprehensive for the world's languages.
