Speaker: Joan Starr
Location: Library Instruction Room LIR , 2nd floor, Shields Library
Do you manage or help others manage any kinds of digital objects, such as texts, data sets, terms, or images? Do you need an easy solution to citing and providing access to this kind of work?
EZID makes it simple for researchers and others to obtain and manage long-term identifiers (DOIs and ARKs) for their digital content. Citation information can also be associated with the identifiers, and this makes DOIs and ARKs powerful tools for tracking usage, getting credit for work, sharing data, and have it reused for more research.
In this free summer webinar, Joan Starr will cover:
why data citation and long-term identifiers are important to researchers;
how EZID can provide an easy-to-use, easy-to-implement identifier service for your institution;
an overview of EZID’s features;
and, how to get started
Joan Starr manages the EZID service for the California Digital Library (CDL), a service that makes it easy to create and manage unique, long-term identifiers. Joan is Chair of the Metadata Working Group at DataCite, an international organization working for easier access to and increased acceptance of research data in scholarly communications. She engages with a wide range of data management stakeholders, including researchers, libraries, data centers, archives and repositories. She is also Strategic and Project Planning Manager for the CDL.
