November 19, 2014 NISO Virtual Conference: Can't We All Work Together?: Interoperability & Systems Integration

  1. 1. + Distributed Person Data NISO Virtual Conference: Can't we all Work Together? Interoperability & Systems Integration Violeta Ilik Digital Innovations Librarian Galter Health Sciences Library Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute Chicago, IL November 19, 2014
  2. 2. + Uniquely identifying researchers Compiling scholarly output Measuring the scholarly output Finding collaborators Disseminating research Tracking funded research Researchers, institutions, publishers, libraries, funding organizations, identity management systems (one example: researcher profile system)
  3. 3. + The Problem Each system creates identifiers for each author and co-author Need to link and disambiguate researchers across institutions and systems Need to preserve institutional authority over scholarly contributions Not all researchers have ORCiD or other unique identifier Systems don’t talk to each other
  4. 4. +
  5. 5. + Challenge Teun Hocks
  6. 6. + Challenges Multiple names/transliteration Change of names Pseudonyms - privacy issues!!! Multiple profiles, identifiers – not linked Data standards not interoperable
  7. 7. + To be or not to be proactive Test me!
  8. 8. + VIVO – researcher profile system Questions: Persistent URIs? Are they location independent? Are they free to use? RDF support? Community driven? Curated resource? Are they reliable? Unrestricted scope?
  9. 9. + How do we track researcher’s various affiliations over time in VIVO? Former Institution VIVO URI http://vivo.institutionA.edu/ individual/n64866 Future Institution VIVO URI http://vivo.institutionC.edu/ individual/n54678 Current Institution VIVO URI http://vivo.institutionB.edu/ individual/n435876 sameAs link? seeAlso link? sameAs link? seeAlso link? OR OR Role: graduate student Role: postdoctoral scholar Role: tenured faculty VIVO Registry URI http://vivo.vivoweb.org/individual/n654321
  10. 10. + Distributed person data Each institution publishes authoritative data about researcher's activities during a given time period. URIs for VIVOs that commit to maintaining the historical data should be registered for ongoing discoverability in the VIVO Registry Each VIVO records ORCID iD to aid in sameAs linking. “The Case For Stable VIVO URIs” Melissa Haendel, Brian Lowe, and Violeta Ilik - VIVO/SciTS Conference, Austin, TX, August 8, 2014
  11. 11. + Institution A Institution B ID:123 http://vivo.institutionA.edu/ individual/n64866 http://vivo.institutionB.edu/ individual/n88764 http://vivo.institutionA.edu/ individual/n45891 Mary Jane Co-authorship Joe Shmo Joe Shmo Creating stable VIVO URIs “The Case For Stable VIVO URIs” Melissa Haendel, Brian Lowe, and Violeta Ilik - VIVO/SciTS Conference, Austin, TX, August 8, 2014 http://vivo.vivoweb.org/individual/n654321
  12. 12. + Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) Task Group on the creation and Function of Name Authorities in a Non-MARC Environment Goals: Relate external named entity identifiers and information to library authority data and bibliographic data Structure library authority data for use in linked data environment and library systems
  13. 13. + OCLC Research - Registering Researchers in Authority Files Task Group “Rather than waiting until sufficient information is available to create a national authority heading, librarians could generate a stub with an ID that others could augment or match and merge with other metadata.”
  14. 14. + Think about it: possibility of using VIVO Registry For Corson-Rikert, Jonathan use instead of the local VIVO Cornell one: http://vivo.cornell.edu/individual/individual22972 the one from VIVO Registry: http://vivo.vivoweb.org/individual/n5444
  15. 15. + Goal Registering VIVO URIs with OCLC PURL server? Registration of VIVO URIs from VIVO Registry in VIAF Making vivoweb.org/ontology URIs persistent “The Case For Stable VIVO URIs” Melissa Haendel, Brian Lowe, and Violeta Ilik - VIVO/SciTS Conference, Austin, TX, August 8, 2014
  16. 16. + Conclusion To support maximal data integration across sites and platforms, we need to support: Persistent VIVO person URIs Management of seeAlso assertions for person instances across various VIVO platforms Management of sameAs assertions for person instances across different data sources Resolving to VIVO Registry Leading to interoperability!
  17. 17. + Linking across data sources Example: VIVO Registry URI sameAs link? Why not?!
