Part of JISC Repositories & Preservation Programme

People depositing copies of their papers, learning materials, slides in institutional and subject-based digital repositories

Need to add metadata to the digital object for information retrieval

What? Creators: people involved in creating item Affiliations: names of institutions These may be entered in a variety of ways

Creators: people involved in creating item

Affiliations: names of institutions

These may be entered in a variety of ways

For example: Collis, G P Paddy Collis G P Collis Gerard Paddy Collis Collis, Gerard P Gerard P Collis Collis, Gerard Paddy Collis, Paddy And these are all spelt correctly!

Collis, G P

Paddy Collis

G P Collis

Gerard Paddy Collis

Collis, Gerard P

Gerard P Collis

Collis, Gerard Paddy

Collis, Paddy

Retrieval Users may want to find all materials by a particular individual Difficult if the name has been entered in a variety of ways

Disambiguation Need to retrieve only those materials deposited by that particular individual With common names, there may be many matches – loss of precision Need to be able to uniquely identify individuals

Need to retrieve only those materials deposited by that particular individual

With common names, there may be many matches – loss of precision

Need to be able to uniquely identify individuals

Submission Need to make it easier for creators of metadata to assign an unambiguous identity to an individual Through an auto-complete function, for example Multiple authors and shifting affiliations means that it makes sense to do this at a national level

Scoping phase for 6 months from July–Dec 2007

Investigating existing services and data structures

Establishing requirements of repositories

Identifying sources of data

Determining ideal data structure

Mapping source data to this structure

Leading to specification for prototype service

From January to November 2008, prototype development and testing

Current plans for Names prototype A database with sample name authority records for individuals and institutions will be created These records will represent particular issues that the service will have to deal with (e.g. linking different versions of the same name, individuals with multiple affiliations over time or different names, different individuals with the same name at the same institution) Records will be output in various name authority formats The prototype will accept searches and issue responses over HTTP

UKCORR Would a name authority service be of benefit to your repository? How do you currently deal with: authors with the same name? same author with different name forms? How easy would it be to interact with an external service for auto-completion of author names during submission? EPrints v3 offers this kind of functionality Do you have any comments on the usage scenarios that were circulated before this meeting? Or any additional uses for a name authority service?
