Persistent Identifiers: Commercial and heritage views


Case studies on persistent identification, presented by Linked Heritage partners led by EDItEUR. These studies show points of difference and similarity between the commercial media and cultural heritage sectors.

Intended audience:

library and information professionals & masters students
heritage (museum, archive, gallery) professionals & masters students

Learning outcomes – readers should aim to:

understand what persistent identifiers are used for in the commercial sector (and a little of what they are not for!)
know some of the “state of the art”, latest developments in identifier technologies in the heritage sector
start thinking about how digital cultural heritage online may be enriched in future with wider use of Web identifiers like DOI

Also available in Greek
