event index

Thursday 17th - Friday 18th June 2004
University College Cork, Cork, Ireland



The persistent identification of electronic resources can play a vital role in enabling long-term access and re-use and can positively impact on an object’s authenticity. This seminar aimed to provide an overview of current activity in the field of persistent identifiers and an understanding of the various persistent identification strategies being used and developed. Individual experiences with persistent identifiers will be explored through presentations from the library community, the higher and further education community, the scientific community and the publishing community. The seminar also provided an update from the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) working group on persistent identifiers.


The seminar was held at the Boole Lecture Theatre, University College Cork. More information about the UCC is available on their website ERPANET are extremely grateful to the University College Cork for providing the venue for this training event.
