HangingTogether: Addressing the challenges with organizational identifiers and ISNI

planet code4lib - Tue, 2016-05-03 19:05

OCLC has just published the report from the 14-member OCLC Research task group on Representing Organizations in ISNI: Addressing the Challenges with Organizational Identifiers and ISNI.* This work originated from discussions with OCLC Research Library Partners on a previous effort by another OCLC Research Library Partners task group on researcher identifiers, Registering Researchers in Authority Files, published in 2014.  That report noted that a key attribute distinguishing researchers with identical names is to accurately associate them with their institutional affiliations.

A variety of stakeholders need to identify organizations accurately and define relationships among their sub-units and with other organizations. Academic institutions want to aggregate their researchers’ output as comprehensively as possible, as such aggregations affect their reputations which in turn can influence their success in obtaining funding and attracting or retaining faculty. Organizational identifiers provide the means to do that.  The International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI), with a database that already includes over 500,000 institutional identifiers derived from registries of agencies with business needs for identifying institutions, can be used to disambiguate organizations.

OCLC Research Library Partner metadata managers questioned how their institutions were represented in the ISNI database, which led to forming the task group.  The report documents:

  • The special challenges represented by organizations
  • New modeling of organizations that others can adapt for their own uses
  • Twelve use-cases and scenarios
  • Examples of how ISNI can meet the needs identified by the twelve use cases
  • 23 recommendations for improving ISNI
  • Issues for which there are no easy or immediate answers

The report also includes an outreach document targeted to academic administrators presenting the reasons why organizational identifiers are important and the benefits of ISNI membership.

The report will be of interest to academic administrators eager to more accurately aggregate the scholarly output of their institutions; to linked data implementers who need to represent relationships between and among organizational entities; and to all librarians who have had to associate a work’s creator with an institutional affiliation.

Five of the task group members will be presenting highlights from this report on 9 May 2016 in a free webinar open to all interested (register here). We welcome your feedback—post comments to this blog entry or tweet your questions or comments using the hashtag #orgidreport.

District Dispatch: Libraries need to Grow2Gig+

planet code4lib - Tue, 2016-05-03 19:00

SHLB Director John Windhausen (upper far right), SHLB members and allies launch the #Grow2Gig campaign.

As many of you know, the ALA is a founding member of the Schools, Health and Libraries Broadband (SHLB) Coalition, which was created in 2009 to advocate for community anchor institutions as part of the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program. I also am proud to serve on the SHLB board of directors and to share the new “Connecting Anchor Institutions: A Vision of our Future” report and Grow2Gig+ campaign.

While public library broadband speeds have steadily improved over the last five years, less than 5 percent of libraries have yet reached the 2020 gigabit goal outlined for community anchor institutions in the National Broadband Plan. With growth in digital media labs that enable creation and sharing of content, video teleconferencing that collapse geographical distances, and the proliferation of mobile devices streaming more and more digital content from our virtual shelves, libraries need to Grow2Gig+.

The new vision paper includes a section dedicated to library broadband that features insights from ALA President Sari Feldman, Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Executive Director Dan Cohen and Bibliotech author John Palfrey (among others) talking about emerging roles and demands to meet the library mission and community needs.

“Libraries are transforming into community hubs for digital content creation and collaboration,” Feldman said. “Having a high-speed and resilient Internet connection at each and every library is essential to ensuring a full range of services related to education, employment, entrepreneurship, empowerment and community engagement for all.”

Importantly, this paper is only the first of many that will make up a broadband action plan for connecting community anchor institutions. Ten papers will follow that make recommendations for federal, state, and local policy changes on issues ranging from wireless networking to broadband funding to digital equity.

Ensuring and leveraging affordable, high-capacity broadband connections for libraries and our communities is central to meeting the ALA and library mission of advancing access to online information and resources for everyone. A commitment to digital equity and opportunity drives our advocacy on E-rate, Lifeline, network neutrality and the need for unlicensed spectrum – as well as the larger Policy Revolution! initiative.

SHLB’s new #Gig2Grow campaign and “Connecting Anchor Institutions: A Broadband Action Plan” provide new and needed resources to make the case for the robust broadband capacity needed to best serve our communities. The ALA will use these documents as a foundation for our work preparing for the upcoming Presidential transition, and we look forward to our continued collaboration with SHLB and its diverse members around the nation to achieve our common goals and vision.

The post Libraries need to Grow2Gig+ appeared first on District Dispatch.
