"Networking Names" Webinar Recording Now Available

 
In this webinar, members of the RLG Partnership Networking Names Advisory Group provide options for networking names, including highlights of requirements derived from fourteen use case scenarios for a "Cooperative Identities Hub" that would provide a framework to concatenate authoritative information and a gateway to all forms of names using a social networking model.

Additional details from the recently published Networking Names report are also covered in this webinar, as well as:

  • the "problem space" of dispersed information about names within one institution
  • WorldCat Identities and the Virtual International Authority File as examples of applications that incorporate some of the Hub components
  • WorldCat Identities and the Virtual International Authority File as examples of applications that incorporate some of the Hub components
  • the work of the Names Project in the UK
  • the Encoded Archival Context work
  • the NISO Institutional Identifier working group, including mapping its own data attributes to the Identities Hub requirements

This webinar is available from the OCLC Research Web site and in the iTunes Store.
