Dear All,

Per Hilton's email below, indeed yes, I wish to see ORCID and DSpace-CRIS made core to future DSpace development.

I've been scratching my head wondering how to get more traction for DSpace-CRIS within the DSpace community.  After presenting on this topic at the ALA conference this week in Chicago, I discussed the situation with colleagues here.

Most libraries in the US run DSpace for publications of one sort or another.  Author profile initiatives such as Vivo seem to be moving to depts other than the library.  Then Vivo for author profiles and DSpace for publications will remain separate systems, managed by different depts.

However for most institutions, collecting, describing and contextualizing research objects beyond publications is still blue sky.  Most institutions have not done it yet.  It is an area that libraries, already with a publication respository, could move into very easily now in these early days.  The work we have done for DSpace-CRIS could facilitate.

Hoping for more dance partners,

Hi All

Please review the agenda.
I see the matter of researcher ID's is not on the agenda.
How do we prove to researchers the impact of openness if we cannot properly
identify them in the first place.
I think this is crucial for advocacy in the long term.
The CRIS module recently released by the HKU should be a core part of
DSpace and so should ORCID ID's.
If you agree then please send an email to:
http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/dspace-general requesting these
core additions to DSpace before the meeting.
