How Can Libraries use ORCID and Author Identifiers

Authority control is a critical part of library cataloging. In traditional cataloging indexing of authorship is accomplished in large part through the use of standardized naming records, produced through NACO and other cooperative cataloging programs. In contrast, journal publishing and other new forms of electronic publishing often lack standard author names and identification. In this NETSL program Dr. Micah Altman, Director of Research at MIT Libraries, describes how the Open Researcher and Contributor Identification (ORCID) program aims to solve this problem. ORCID is a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers and collaborators. It also links what is in the registry to other author identifier services such as Scopus to enhance the scientific discovery process and improve the efficiency of research funding and collaboration.
