      • e.g. institutional affiliations over time
    • Interfaces for use by repositories and other services
  • 13. Planned features of Names service
    • Unique identity number for individuals and institutions
      • People may have more than one identity number (pseudonyms)
    • All forms of name are of equal status

    • Authors will be able to update information about themselves and choose what data is made available to others
      • Best way to avoid data protection issues
    • Repositories will be able to query or harvest the database
      • To help their users enter consistent metadata
    • Cross-repository search services will be able to use unique identifiers to retrieve information from different sources
