OCLC and CSUC (Consorci de Serveis Universitaris de Catalunya) invited all library representatives with responsibilities of managing authority files at university, regional, and country levels to a mini-symposium to learn and discuss needs, efforts, challenges, and successes in streamlining authorities and identifiers across all workflows, practices, and scales (institutional, national, and global). Among other crucial topics, we explored:
- What are the current practices of name disambiguation in research and national contexts and the rising adoption of unique, persistent identifiers?
- How can traditional library authority practices move forward and transition to next-generation metadata practices?
- How can you connect, share, and learn from each other and how can you apply improved aligned of practices that are beneficial to your institution?
- What is the recent work of OCLC Research in this area and how can it help you move forward?
