How Librarians Use, Implement and Can Support Researcher Identifiers
Wednesday, August 10, 2016
1:00pm-2:30pm (Eastern Time)
Consistency in metadata is repeatedly discussed as problem in information management and delivery of digital resources. One core element of that metadata is the use of controlled vocabularies and authority control. These methods can also be applied to various elements of the research process. Recently, a variety of projects have gained traction within the research community to identify elements of the process that will support discovery, linking and interaction with research outputs. These systems and approaches include ORCID, DataCite, FundRef, CREDIT and others. This webinar will focus on the role that libraries and publishers can play in fostering these systems in their work. In addition to updates on a few of these initiatives, this webinar will also highlight the implementation of these systems in the research lifecycle.
