In February, CNI held a workshop to explore and, where appropriate, begin efforts to coordinate a range of developments in historically independent spheres that relate to the management of authorial identity in the new digital scholarly communications environment. It brought together individuals from scholarly publishing, indexing and abstracting services, identity and authorization management projects, authority control library operations, international standards organizations, and university institutional repository projects. This session will provide an overview of the key issues surfaced in the workshop and some proposed first steps for addressing the opportunities in this arena.
