*How Librarians Use, Implement and Can Support Researcher Identifiers*

Consistency in metadata is repeatedly discussed as problem in information
management and delivery of digital resources.  One core element of that
metadata is the use of controlled vocabularies and authority control.
These methods can also be applied to various elements of the research
process.  Recently, a variety of projects have gained traction within the
research community to identify elements of the process that will support
discovery, linking and interaction with research outputs.  These systems
and approaches include ORCID, DataCite, FundRef, CREDIT and others.  This
webinar will focus on the role that libraries and publishers can play in
fostering these systems in their work.  In addition to updates on a few of
these initiatives, this webinar will also highlight the implementation of
these systems in the research lifecycle.

Contributing their expertise and perspectives, this webinar features the
following noted professionals:

*Attribution from a Research Library Perspective*

*NISO Virtual Conference, 11am-5pm (EDT)*

*Data Curation: Cultivating Past Research Data for Future Consumption*

Research data is an increasingly important component of communicating
science. The responsibility for providing curation support for research
data is falling on libraries, repositories, and archives. Support for
research data is no small task, requiring expertise in data management,
field-specific metadata structures, integration and sharing issues, and,
potentially, access control, rights management, and privacy concerns.
Cultivation and curation of this new form of scientific information at
scale is a service that many in the scholarly world expect the library to
manage, and librarians are well positioned to provide.

This virtual conference will explore the many aspects of data curation,
including trusted-repository certification, metadata creation and
management specific to data, systems deployment issues, facilitation of
data sharing services, and data control issues. Speakers will provide
first-hand experience of the unique challenges involved in curating data.
The session will close with a panel discussion of future trends in data
management and how libraries can prepare now to address them.

Confirmed speakers include: *Suzie Allard*, University of
Tennessee-Knoxville; *Jennifer Lee*, University of Texas-Austin; *Lisa
Johnston*, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities; *Melissa Levine*,
University of Michigan; *Rebekah Cummings*, University of Utah; *Ashley
Clark*, Northeastern University; *Ian Lamb* and *Nicole Contaxis*, New York
University Health Sciences Library; and *Libbie Stephenson*, UCLA.
