About the PIDs for Librarians and Repository Managers category

Persistent identifiers (PIDs) have become an important part of the research workflow. Funders expect entities within the academic world to be associated with PIDs, institutions are looking at PIDs to be able to track all people and outputs from their institution, and researchers want PIDs so that they can get credit for their work.

As a librarian or repository manager, you form the bridge between the researcher and the scholarly communication environment (publishers, funders and others). You therefore play a key role in the adoption of PIDs. You can provide training, examples and support so every research community benefits from the solutions enabled by PIDs. The FREYA knowledge hub provides a first overview of the PID landscape to help you get started. If this overview doesn’t answer your questions, please ask the PID community and post your question on the PID Forum.
