Title of Program

Easier Author Identification

Presenter Information

Joe Cera, Berkeley LawFollow

Presentation Type

Lightning Talk

Program Description

This lightning talk would discuss our efforts to make it easier to identify authors and retrieve a full list of works in the repository. We rely on existing identifiers and standards resulting in no added costs and no new identifier systems. We are currently adding ISNI, VIAF, Library of Congress, and Institutional identifiers for each faculty member (where available). We have also added an indexed field in our Digital Commons instance to allow searching by those identifiers. The system can easily accommodate new identifiers and allows filtering that is not normally available in the Digital Commons search methods.
