Over the past year, the Heritage PIDs project has created a range of resources to support the community in adopting persistent identifiers (PIDs), from case studies to a PID Demonstrator. Now, in response to the findings of the Heritage PIDs survey and engagement activities, the project has developed an initial version of a resource, Developing Identifiers for Heritage Collections, which aims to help heritage professionals determine the type of persistent identifiers they need to use to advance the strategy for their collections. It describes the different aspects of persistent identifier implementation so users can determine which aspects are important for their organisation. It also provides examples of other implementations and describes the benefits of each aspect to support business cases and assist in communicating about PIDs.
This workshop will give an overview of the resources created by the project including case studies and the improved PID Demonstrator. It will also launch the consultation period for Developing Identifiers for Heritage Collections, gathering initial feedback from attendees and outlining the next steps for the resource.
Who should attend? This resource is aimed at decision makers within Galleries, Libraries, Museums and Archives but anyone with an interest in identifiers for heritage collections may benefit from attending.
When is it? 14:30-16:00 BST, 21 April 2021.
