> Join us tomorrow for the final instalment in the THOR webinar series ‘Persistent Identifiers: What, Why and How?’, in which Marcel Ras (Netherlands Coalition for Digital Preservation) and Remco van Veenendaal (Dutch National Archives) will provide an introduction to the Persistent Identifier (s)election guide.
> You should attend this webinar if you want to learn about how to choose the most suitable identifier system for your needs, and how to implement persistent identifiers in your own organisation.
> Cultural heritage organisations, regardless of size, are often hesitant to implement PIDs. They lack knowledge of what PIDs are, don’t know about their capabilities and benefits, and fear a possible complex and costly implementation process as well as the maintenance costs for a sustained service. The Digital Heritage Network and the Dutch Coalition on Digital Preservation addresses these issues by raising awareness of (the importance of) PIDs in cultural heritage organisations; by increasing the knowledge regarding the use of PIDs within cultural heritage; by supporting the technical implementation of PIDs in cultural heritage collection management systems. How we did this on a nationwide scale will be explained in the webinar.
> There are multiple PID systems. But which system is most suited to your situation? Archival Resource Keys (ARKs)? Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs)? Handle, OpenURL, Persistent Uniform Resource Locators (PURLs) or Uniform Resource Names (URNs)? Each system has its own particular properties, strengths and weaknesses. The PID Guide from the Digital Heritage Network’s Persistent Identifier project helps you to learn and think about important PID subjects, and guides your first steps towards selecting a PID system.
> The webinar will take place on Tuesday 13 June, 16.00–17.00 CET. Please register in advance here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/2692099627442748163.
