Conference Presentation: Integrating Researcher Identifiers into University and Library Systems
The slide deck that is embedded below was presented at the 2014 CNI Spring Meeting that took place last week in St. Louis, MO.
Integrating Researcher Identifiers into University and Library Systems
A number of approaches to providing authoritative researcher identifiers have emerged, but they tend to be limited by discipline, affiliation or publisher. This talk provides an overview of an OCLC Research task group’s analysis of a complex ecosystem of systems and institutions that provide, aggregate and use researcher and name authorities: researcher identifier systems. The presentation will reflect on the state of the practice and on the remaining challenges to the integration of researcher identifiers into the systems and practices of libraries, universities, funders, and publishers. Comments on the group’s draft recommendations will be solicited.
