This is an 11th hour panic button request before a meeting tomorrow at which I’m being asked by a university what PIDs they should use in their RIMS for facilities and instruments. Noting that these are two different things with two different PID types likely - what are people using?
I’ve heard of some who are using GRID or ROR for facilities. What else is being used and why?
There is a PIDs for instruments RDA group. I understand they have come up with a schema (seen it on GitHub) but have not yet decided which PID type to use. Can someone give me a further update on this? It will be hard to say to this university: capture the metadata according the RDA group schema but do not assign a PID yet…
I’m aware that ORCID records can include in the resource type, PIDs for equipment (instruments) and infrastructure (facilities). Can someone point me to an example record?
Any thoughts, corrections, suggestions greatly appreciated!
