A new video of a project briefing session from CNI’s spring 2014 meeting is now available:
Integrating Researcher Identifiers Into University And Library Systems
Micah Altman (MIT) and Karen Smith-Yoshimura (OCLC Research)
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 reflects 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.
