Starting the first week of March, and running every two weeks until mid-May, this series will provide a comprehensive look at persistent identifiers (PIDs) in Canada. The series will include Canadian and international speakers who will highlight the benefits and use cases for PIDs and cover established identifiers such as digital object identifiers (DOIs), researcher identifiers (ORCID iDs), as well as emerging identifiers, tools, and services. This will also be an opportunity to engage in discussion on a national PIDs strategy for Canada.
Series presenters will include researchers, librarians, administrators of PID systems, and international leaders in the PID ecosystem. Sessions will be recorded, and will be offered with simultaneous interpretation in order to accommodate francophone and anglophone attendees.
The full schedule is as follows. Complete descriptions are available (see menu to the right).
