  4. 4. What are standard identifiers? •  Numeric or alpha-numeric persistent designations associated with a single entity •  Entities can be an institution, person, or piece of content
  5. 5. …and what do they do, exactly? Disambiguate and enforce uniqueness Enable linking and data integration In other words, persistent identifiers provide a simple basis for data governance
