Why is this important?

  • Match and manage data, outputs, grants and improve discoverability

  • Increase the accuracy of the HERDC and ERA counts

  • Tracking researchers as the move about

  • Authority control

The Project

  • National Library of Australia (NLA) project funded by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS)

  • The Aim: Adapt the NLA’s People Australia infrastructure so that the research sector could contribute and manage their party records and obtain NLA-issued persistent identifiers for their records about researchers and research organisations.

For researchers the aim was to provide:

  • One identifier, issued by the NLA, for each researcher to which all of his or her other identifiers can resolve.

  • A public identifier.

  • A persistent identifier for us to use

  • Example: http://nla.gov.au/nla.party-630330

What do we do now?

  • We need to provide the NLA with data so we can give our researchers persistent id’s

  • Some important points to note:

    • This is easier said than done.

    • There is no single point for data – it is kept in a number of systems that do not effectively talk to each other.

    • No one is responsible for this

Master Data Manager

  • The Aim: To build a comprehensive record about a researcher, their outputs, affiliations, data and grants.

  • It is hoped that this system will be installed next year 2012.

  • Watch this space.
