National Strategy for Shareable Local Name Authorities National Forum: a White Paper

Community leaders, including Jean Godby and Janifer Gatenby, discuss ways to improve the efficiency of workflows that produce disambiguated names of people, organizations, and other important entities associated with library resources. In the process, the practice of library authority control will be modernized to focus on the management of identities instead of authorized name strings.

An outcome of the IMLS grant Shareable Local Authorities awarded to Cornell University; Chew Chiat Naun and Jason Kovari, principal investigators.
