In 2020, CRKN continued the work of the ORCID-CA and partnered with CARL-Portage to administer the new DataCite Canada Consortium. With these two national PID consortia in place, members and stakeholders are looking to develop and implement a national PID strategy. In this session, attendees will revisit PIDs and their value, and explore the strategic goals and importance of a Canadian PIDs implementation plan. Panelists will explore the work of the Canadian Persistent Identifier Committee (CPIDAC) and a pilot project from Coalition Publica.
